Libertas per Vertitatem La Vie CollEijiemiG Banned In Boston 37th Year — No. 1 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pa. Thursday, September 29, 1960 Eighteen Summer Grads Receive Degrees At September Exercises Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of the college, conferred eighteen degrees to Lebanon Valley students in the audio-visual room of the Gossard Memorial Library, Friday, September 2. Assisting Dr. Miller was Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the college, who also delivered a brief commencement address. Ralph S. Shay, chairman of the depart- ment of history, served as marshal for the occasion in place of Dr. George G. Struble, who had not yet returned from Europe. The Rev. Bruce C. Souders, director of public relations, assumed the duties of college chaplain in the program. A luncheon for the graduates, their families, and the college staff members who participated in the program followed the commencement exercises. The graduates are Edward J. Alexan- der, Lebanon; Douglas Beane, Harris- burg; Samuel E. Butz, Chambersburg; Joseph B. Dietz, Pottstown; Ronald P. Hovis, Lancaster; Marianne A. Kanoff, Harrisburg; Cyril J. Kardos, Vander- grift; C. Thomas Mau, Aldan; and Douglas Miller, Millersburg. Also graduated were Nancy L. Nickell, Philadelphia; Paul H. Radcliffe, Leba- non; Bruce R. Rismiller, Mahanoy City; Kenneth J. Seaman, Palmyra; Frederic Vespe, Astoria; David L. Weiser, Harris- burg; Chester L. Wertsch, Lititz; and Ray Wise, Cornwall. Pot Sci Club Will Conduct Election The Political Science Club has set up a committee headed by Ronald Bell to organize an election on campus. The club will act as an election board and committee for fair campaign prac- tices, and will remain bi-partisan through- out the campaign. Debates, forums and speeches will be arranged between the two opposing or- ganizations on Campus, "Youth for Nixon" and "College Students for Ken- nedy and Johnson." These activities are intended to stir political interest at LVC; the Political Science Club invites all stu- dents to participate. Elaine J. Walter Will Enter USN Officer Training Elaine Walter, a senior in the depart- ment of biology, recently received word of her selection by the U. S. Navy to enter its Officer Candidate School for Women upon graduation from LVC. At that time she will be commissioned as an ensign and will serve on active duty for two years. Elaine was chosen after attending the Navy's College Junior Program this past summer at Newport, Rhode Island, where she reported on July 5 for eight weeks of training. . As an officer candidate, Elaine will receive concentrated instruction in Navy customs and courtesies, mission and or- ganization of the Navy, personnel ad- ministration, military drill, and other fields of Navy endeavor. Graduate Fellowship Offered Top Seniors The need for highly qualified college teachers in America presents one of to- day's most pressing problems. The Woodrow Wilson National Fel- lowships provide a partial solution to this problem. Each year they fully sup- port a thousand carefully selected men and women in their first year of gradu- ate work, primarily those in the human- ities and social sciences. Eligible for nomination are outstand- ing college seniors and graduates who by the fall of 1961 will have accumu- lated less than a year's graduate credit. A candidate must be nominated by a faculty member no later than October 31, 1960. His information form and all support- ing materials must be received by the regional chairman no later than Novem- ber 20, 1960. Interviews are made in January and announcements of the awards are made before March 15, 1961. Dramatics Club Plans Three For The Show** The Wig and Buckle Club, Lebanon Valley's dramatics club, is preparing its first production of the season, a series of three one-act plays to be seen in Engle Hall Saturday, October 15 (LVC Day). To be entitled "Three for the Show, Volume II," the program will include Susan Glaspell's "Suppressed Desires," Gian Carlo Menotti's opera, "The Tele- phone," and Edna St. Vincent Millay's "Aria da Capo." For the convenience of students, the dress rehearsal Friday night, October 14, at 8:00 p.m. will be open to the public, at a cost of $.50 per person. This open rehearsal will include all the features of the actual performance, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Satur- day, with reserved seats selling at $1.00. Tickets are available from any Wig and Buckle member and at the door the night of the performance. Final tryouts for these plays were held at the organization's first meeting Sep- tember 20. Judy Cassel, '64, will make her LVC debut in "Suppressed Desires," a comedy-satire on psychoanalysis which also features Mary Louise Lamke and George Smith. Doris Kohl and William Nixon will star in "The Telephone," as- sisted by Dick Rotz at the piano. "Aria da Capo," first presented by Wig and Buckle last year, will be performed by the original cast, including Miss Lamke, James Kline, George Hiltner, Bill Reighter and George Smith. Women's Resident Hall Proceeds As Scheduled Construction of Vickroy Hall, the new women's dormitory, is proceeding ac- cording to schedule and should be com- pleted by September, 1961, in time for the fall semester. The dormitory is being erected on the site formerly occupied by the college in- firmary. There will be facilities for 122 women and a head resident. The floor plan is similar to that of Mary Capp Green; however, lounges and the recep- tion desk are to be located in the base- ment. Double rooms of a modern decor will feature sliding windows and built-in fur- niture. The dormitory will be electric- ally heated. Replacing the old infirmary is the dou- ble house recently installed facing West Hall, to the rear of the College Dining Hall. Placement Publication Available To Seniors The 1961 edition of the College Placement Annual will be available to seniors October 1, in the Student-Person- nel Office. The Annual contains listings of job op- portunities available from more than 1800 employers. Included in the publi- cation are sections on training programs, letter writing, and the placement service itself, as well as tips on what to say to the interviewer. More than two-thirds of the companies listed in the Annual indicate an interest in some type of engineer, mechanical engineers being most in demand. Close behind are electrical, electronic, chemi- cal, and industrial engineers. Chemists and business administrators are also high on the list. Other fields categorized in the book range from accounting through claims adjusting, home economics, liberal arts, mathematics and therapy to veteri- nary medicine. All seniors interested in positions out- side the teaching profession are urged to make an appointment with Dean Faust for a conference concerning the type of employment they are seeking. This con- ference should be scheduled before No- vember 1. There is no charge for this service. Fairlamb Will Perform At Piano Recital Tonight Mr. William Fairlamb, an associate professor of piano, will present a recital on September 29, 1960, at 8:30 in Engle Hall. Mr. Fairlamb received his Bachelor of Music degree, cum laude, from the Phil- adelphia Conservatory. He has studied piano with Olga Samaroff and Charles deBodo. Mr. Fairlamb has prepared a program of Bach-Busoni, Schubert, Brahms, Pro- kofieff, and Debussy. Lebanon Valley Tops Wilkes In Opening Game Of Season Lebanon Valley topped Wilkes Saturday in a hard-fought defensive game with the winning score coming with 3:48 remaining in the second half. The first quarter was no more than an exchange of punts with neither team making a serious threat. Lebanon Valley Elevates Four Faculty Members Dr. Donald E. Fields, college librarian with the rank of professor, now holds the title "Joseph Bittinger Eberly Pro- fessor of Latin Language and Litera- ture." Promoted to the rank of assistant' pro- fessor were Mrs. Frances T. Fields of the department of Spanish, Mrs. June E. Herr of the elementary education de- partment, and Mrs. Geraldine Kurtz of the department of music. Dr. Miller has announced that all pro- motions are effective beginning with this academic year. Seated, from left: Mrs. Geraldine Kurtz, Mrs. June M. Herr; standing, from left: Dean Carl Y. Ehrhart, Mr. Donald E. Fields. Robert Griswold Joins Chemistry Department The newest faculty member of the chemistry department is Robert E. Gris- wold, who recently received his Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Tech- nology. He had previously received his M.S. degree in Chemistry at Northeastern University in 1956 and his B.S. degree at the New Bedford Institute of Technology in 1954. As an Assistant Professor of Chem- istry at Valley, Dr. Griswold is teaching Qualitative Inorganic Analysis during the first semester and will be teaching Quan- titative Inorganic Analysis and Advanced Quantitative Analysis second semester. In addition to chemistry his interests in- clude photography and electronics. Dr. Griswold is married, and on Sep- tember 19 he and his wife became the parents of their first child, William Maverick. He is .originally from Cape Cod, but. he resided in Boston for the past six years, during which time he worked on his Ph. D. Dr. Griswold says that he likes Lebanon Vajley, and Penn- sylvania "very, very much" and that .he is greatly impressed by both the students and the faculty here at Valley. In the second quarter, LVC started a 61 yard march on their own 39. The drive featured the running and passing of Les Holstein, senior left halfback. Holstein went over from the one to cli- max the drive. An extra point was added on a placement by co-captain Dave Miller. The first half ended with Wilkes on the LVC 27 yard line, their furthest penetration, and the score 7-0, LVC win- ning. The second half opened with Wilkes taking the kickoff and driving to the LVC 29 yard line before being held by the LVC defense. Upon regaining the ball, Wilkes began another march featur- ing the bull-like rushes of fullback Mar- vin Antinnes. The attack was halted on the five yard line when Vance Stouffer slashed through the Wilkes forward wall to bring Wilkes quarterback Frank Spudis down for a 5 yard loss. Early in the fourth quarter Wilkes See "Wilkes Game," Page 4 New Greek Instructor Joins Valley Faculty Perry John Troutman has assumed the post of instructor in religion and New Testament Greek at LVC. Mr. Troutman is a graduate of East Aurora High School, New York; Hough- ton College; and the United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio.

Here We Go Again The staff of La Vie Collegienne welcomes everyone at the beginning of this 1960-61 season. We greet returning students, freshmen, and new faculty members alike, and we place ourselves at their service as a medium of campus communica- tion. LVC students and faculty are the substance of our newspaper. We seek this year, as in the past, to give fair and accurate coverage to all departments, organiza- tions, and individuals as they engage in their various activities. We encourage all Valleyites to contribute news, features and ideas to La Vie; a diversity of material makes the paper more interesting to a greater variety of students. We invite the cooperation of everyone as we publish a newspaper which, we hope, will reflect campus talent and uphold high standards of college journalism. This is the goal for which the editors and the staff have resolved to work to the best of their ability during the coming publishing year. Letters To The Editor Letters to the Editor, a column wherein the members of the student body may express their views in approval or in criticism of matters relating to the college and to the students in general, will be entertained in La Vie. La Vie has placed the following requirements on such letters to protect not only itself as a newspaper of high standards, but also the authors of such letters. 1. All letters must be signed by the writer, although the author's name will be withheld on request and maintained in absolute confidence by the editors. 2. Letters must be free of vulgarity and abusive language. 3. Letters may not publicly denounce any racial or religious group or in- dividual who is unaware of the problem for which he is being held accountable. J£a Vie 3nquire3 Freshmen Express Opinions About First Week Activities by Connie Myers Myers The arrival of a new freshman class at Lebanon Valley is as magic a social event as the opening of a symphony in Boston. In an effort to help the neonate Valleyite adjust to campus life, the cabi- net members of the Student Chris- tian Association, the faculty, Facul- ty-Student Council and various cam- pus organizations plan a week of ac- tivities designed to help even the greenest freshman to mingle, mingle, mingle. This year Freshman Week opened with a get-acquainted party in the gym on Sunday evening, September 10. It was followed on Monday night by a recep- tion in the college church and on Tues- day by a square dance in the gym. Wed- nesday evening's featured event was the traditional hike to Fink's Park with fre- quent changing of partners en route. Thursday was an evening of rest in preparation for the two events of Friday evening — the SCA skit in Engle Hall fol- lowed by the newly instituted "meet the faculty" reception in the College Lounge. Student-Faculty Council spon- sored Saturday night's dance at which exhibits by various campus organizations were featured. Much planning and hard work went into the preparation of these events. Their purpose was to reduce the strangeness of college by helping the new students to meet each other, upperclass- men, and faculty members in interesting and enjoyable ways. A brief examina- tion of some freshmen's views may give an idea of the success of this year's pro- gram and some helpful pointers for con- sideration when planning next year's. Carole Jiminez and Dolores Mallery: "We enjoyed Freshman Week, especially the hike. However the square dance was sort of a flop, because the boys stayed mainly on one side, the girls on another side. Perhaps the square dance should have been held after the hike when we knew more people. The skit — even though we didn't recognize all the 'facul- ty' — and Saturday's dance were very good features." Chuck Ebersole: "The hike presented one with too many names at once, but the program following dinner at Fink's Park was very good. I really enjoyed the skit." Judy Cassell: "I liked the hike best. It was well-planned and the moving line was a good idea to help us meet people. However, the first night's get-acquainted party in the gym seemed unorganized and slow moving. It needed something to pep it up as did the square dance. Perhaps the latter should have been based on lively modern dances like the cha-cha instead of square dances. The "meeting-the-faculty" reception might have been more successful, too, if it had been held in a larger area with the faculty more clearly identified. Saturday night's faculty reception line, displays, and dance were really well-handled. The band sounded professional." Tom Overly: "I enjoyed it all. At the "meet the faculty" reception I met more students than faculty, but still think it was a good idea to have such a gather- ing. The Student-Faculty dance was the best event of the week." Hat Hubbub Why does Lebanon Valley have an or- ganization known as the White Hats? The answer seems obvious enough: last year's freshman initiation was poorly handled. It accomplished few of the ob- jectives of such a program, and a super- ior method was deemed necessary. The White Hats were created, pattern- ed after similar groups on other cam- puses. They were installed by the Presi- dent of the College and charged with the task formerly undertaken by the sopho- more class. They had a statement of purpose, and objectives to be met, for the good of the freshman class and the school as a whole. Their main concern should have been the successful attainment of their goals. The main concern of some members, however, seems to be the maintenance of their own prestige. Why else have members of the staff of this publication been annoyed by White Hats in the hope that they would reveal the contents of this paper before it was made public to the whole student body? Are the Hats afraid there might be a letter or two with some unfavorable comments? To be right is not always to be popu- lar. However, any active group in any area of college life should not fear pub- lic opinion if their actions coincide with their stated objectives. Below in this column there appears a letter which -we feel is justified (al- though it would have appeared in print despite the personal opinions of the edi- tors). When several regularly scheduled meetings are disrupted because rain in- terrupted Frosh Frolics, resentment to- ward the White Hats is understandable. A closer scrutiny of the college calendar was in order. So far the Hats have done a reason- ably good job, although the upperclass members of the group may lack the fer- vor and relish for the sport that an all- sophomore committee might show. They hold their own version of the Nuremberg War Trials and everyone is reasonably happy. Yet there is no doubt that this edi- torial will be read with some trepidation in certain areas. Why do the Hats fear any adverse public reaction? Perhaps freshman welfare plays sec- ond fiddle to the respect and admiration the White Hats hope to receive for then- efforts. How about it, Hats? (PHR). Letters To La Vie Questions Purity To the Editors of La Vie: September is here again, and as in years past I trod the walks which amble about our campus. I see and hear the same things as in years gone by, the smoke from the heating plant, the music from the conserv, and most of all I see the dinks. But what is this new sight I see be- fore my eyes? It is white, the symbol of purity, yet it does not follow this course. It bears the torch of freedom, yet it sub- jugates people to its will. I ask myself, what is this . . . this thing that stands as both judge and jury over the dink? No longer is it a class that rules the freshmen, but a hat, a hat which by its very color and emblem stands for good and justice; yet its actions stand for op- pression and tyranny. Can this be true or do my eyes de- ceive me? No longer is it the word "sophomore" which brings terror into a freshman's heart. Now the cry which makes them tremble is "White Hat." The Denizen * * • » Considers Hats Unfair To the Editors of La Vie: Perhaps it is unfair to start out the year criticizing our newest campus or- ganization, but it seems the White Hats are taking a little too much for granted. On September 19, the first Frosh Frolics of the year were cancelled because of rain. The next evening, it was announced at the evening meal that these frolics would take place in one hour's time, at 7:00 p.m. Under Construction The Class of '64 was greeted at LVC by the sounds of hammers, saws, picks and shovels of workmen completing the power station behind the freshman men's dorm and laying the foundation for the new Vickroy Hall dorm for women. Dyna- mite being used in the latter project was functional in keeping the frosh alert during Freshman Week as they concentrated on test after test in Engle Hall. Let us say that the dynamite necessary for the beginning of a building is rep- resentative of dynamic changes and beginnings throughout campus life. The foundations for the '62 yearbook are underway; explosions of ideas are taking place within every organization as the members plan for the year's activities; the cornerstone of a successful football season has been laid; and student teachers are venturing forth in hopes that their college courses will be steel girders supporting their performance. All of us face college work ever new to us; we need to build worthy study habits. The resident women's government, having engineered the revision of its rule book, will function anew in cooperation with the other governing bodies for the safety and well-being of the students they supervise. The White Hats, whose efforts are materializing from last year's blueprints, are striving to prove them- selves effective so as to make their initiation idea a traditional campus institution. This year's Student-Faculty Council, in directing its budgeting of the Student Activities Fee, has attempted to exercise strict fairness in distributing funds accord- ing to the needs of the organizations concerned. Extras — latticework on the struc- tures of organizational projects — must come from the enterprise of the club itself when possible. Freshmen were introduced to the coming plans and projects of the various campus groups at the Student-Faculty Dance during Freshman Week. The very existence of the displays shown there indicates a certain foresight and endeavor already begun; hopefully, this blueprint activity will be realized during the year in the form of worthwhile events and programs. One of the biggest beginnings, destined to have far-reaching effects, is the establishment of the new and diversified curriculum in which the Class of '64 is the first to participate. LVC seems to be cooperating with the liberal arts view of building a world of men and women proficient in a major field, but cementing the various fields into a workable, cooperative society with the mortar of liberal education. As the school year begins, and the innovations mentioned are just beginning to take form, skeptics may say as one observer of the new dormitory construction quipped, "Gee, they're building a hole!" It behooves us, however, to add our own efforts to those of other workers in whatever project with which we may be affili- ated, and help promote the finished product. We salute those on our campus who are building, whether they are con- structing a residence hall or a course outline, a yearbook or a program committee, a career or a study schedule. Growth and change are the essence of life, and it is encouraging to witness it at LVC. (JMK) Our Present Political System Is Result Of Years Of Change Who'll be the next President of the United States? This is the question on mil- lions of minds now, but few people today realize how different the question was in 1887. Then, at the Constitutional Convention, one hotly debated question was this: should we have a President? Many of the delegates were afraid that a single chief executive would have altogether too many chances to turn himself into a dictator, and favored the estab- lishment of a three-man executive committee to carry out the will of the Legisla- ture. All seniors contemplating applying to graduate schools and particularly those interested in securing fellow- ships may obtain advance information of the opportunities offered by such schools from the office of the Dean of Men. Although all students are urged to contact their major advisers whenever possible, this service should be viewed as an opportunity for ALL students to discover the variety of aids avail- able to qualified applicants. The college calendar for that evening carried four events scheduled for that hour, three of which would involve freshmen. I also understand that your own publication was planning an organi- zational meeting for that time. Nevertheless, the White Hats pre- empted this time period with one hour's notice, forcing these other organizations to reschedule their meetings or exclude prospective freshman members. Perhaps the college needed a new ini- tiation program after last year's fiasco, but no organization should be allowed to upset the planned schedules of others. The Hats may dictate the frosh, but to the upperclassmen they are no more than equals. Disgusted Club Member remember.., ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES! The most important reason why sup- porters of a one-man executive finally won out may well have been that every- body was sure that George Washington, whom all the delegates knew and trusted, would get the job. Washington thought he had his hands full as President of a 13-state U.S.A. with a population of 3.9 million. "These public meetings with reference to and from different departments of state are as much if not more than I am able to undergo," he wrote in 1790. But over the past 170 years, the Presi- dent's job has grown as fast as the U. S. itself. Washington during a typical year of his administration, signed 44 laws and one executive ordelr; President Eisen- hower is maintaining an average of 944 laws and 60 executive orders a year. Washington granted nine pardons and gave Federal jobs to 65 people in 1791; Ike has averaged an annual 112 pardons and 43,537 jobs (including military and Post Office appointments). Washing- ton's first budget was written on a single sheet of paper; the current Eisenhower budget runs to 1030 pages, with a 188- page appendix. Today's President holds down not one job, but five, and any one of the five could fill an eight-hour day. He is Head of State, Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, chief legislative policy maker, Chief Executive and the head of his political party. The way we choose the man to do this staggeringly big job has changed as much as the job itself. The Constitution originally provided for election of the President by electors from each state, to be chosen "in a manner prescribed by the state legislatures," each of whom would vote for two men. The one receiving the highest number of votes would be President, the runner-up Vice President.

The group has set up its headquarters on the second floor of the college lounge. From there its operations will be directed by co-chairmen Bob Hartnett and Jim Reilly. An advisory committee has been estab- lished, consisting of Barry Danfelt, Bill Rigler and Greg Stanson on the dorm student division, and Ellis Wolfe, Dale Chernich and James Dressel on the day student division. The purpose of the organization will be to advise persons of voting age on the laws in their state for absentee bal- lots; to enlighten the electorate on the Democratic Party's stand on issues; and help in any way possible to stimulate in- terest in the presidential election. What About Absentee Voting? In accordance with the purposes ol the group, the Circle-K makes the fol- lowing announcement: Any college student who is registered may vote in the coming election if he ob- tains an absentee ballot from the election board of his county. This may be done by writing a letter to his county board requesting an application for such a bal- lot. I In order to facilitate this the LVC "College Students for Kennedy and Johnson" will make available to any registered voter a postcard which can be used for the purpose. Anyone wishing to obtain such a postcard should contact any Circle-K member. Dr. Bissinger Announces Math Dept. Events Dr. Barnard Bissinger, chairman of the department of mathematics, announces the largest enrollment of mathematics majors in the history of the college. 50 students of math and engineering, 30 of them freshmen, demonstrate a growing interest in those fields. Wagner To Give Evening Lectures A series of night lectures will be pre- sented this year by Mr. Robert J. Wag- ner, assistant professor of mathematics, who has returned from a year's leave of absence for purposes of study. Mr. Wagner will lecture on modern mathematics. Math 11 (Calculus) stu- dents are urged to attend as many of these evening sessions as possible. Eight lec- tures will be presented, with four per semester. Copies of the talks will be available in limited numbers. Bissinger Holds Bi-Monthly Lectures The mathematics and science teachers of Lebanon County have chosen Dr. Bar- nard Bissinger to speak on modern math- ematics every other week throughout the academic year. The lectures will stress the need for logic and set-theoretic think- ing in the teaching of theory and in the solving of problems. Lectures will take place in the Lebanon High School. Navy Research Contract Forthcoming A research contract, already signed by the Secretary of the Navy, will shortly be received by the LVC math depart- ment for research in statistical aspects of inventory control. A future announce- ment concerning this contract and its implications for LVC will be given in a later issue of La Vie. Dr. Love Will Head Lebanon Valley AAUP The Lebanon Valley College Chapter of the American Association of Uni- versity Professors has named Dr. Jean O. Love, chairman of the department of psychology, president for the 1960-61 academic year. Dr. Love holds an A.B. degree from Erskine College, an M.A. from Win- throp College, and a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. Ralph Shay, chairman of the depart- ment of history and political science, and Dr. Karl Lockwood, assistant pro- fessor of chemistry, will serve as vice president and secretary, respectively, of the association. Valley Frois Attend IM.I. Ciiem Meeting I'roiessors rseiuig ana jnonniger weie delegates to the Ustn National Meeting of tne American Chemical Society in Mew York, the week of September 12. Dr. Neidigs time was mainly occu- pied with work on the writing of a lab- oratory manual and textbook for the chemical Bond Approach Committee. Ihis committee is sponsored by the Na- tional Science Foundation and is con- cerned mainly with the teaching of high school chemistry. Dr. Hollinger attended a three-day symposium on theoretical chemistry. He co-authored a paper, entitled "The Ki- netic Theory of Dense Gases," which was presented at the symposium by C. V. Curtis. This work is based on a part of Dr. Hollinger's doctoral thesis. Prof. Tom Presents Projects At Seminar Mr. C. F. Joseph Tom, one of the ten recipients of the Ford Foundation Fel- lowship in Economics, presented two economic projects for discussion in a Faculty. Research Seminar in Eco- nomics at the Wharton School of Fi- nance and Commerce, the University of Pennsylvania, June 20 to August 12, 1960. Other participants in the program in- cluded representatives from Drew Uni- versity, Wilkes College, Swarthmore Col- lege, Marian College, St. Francis Col- lege, and Lafayette College. The first subject, "The Progressional Marginal Utility Theory of Optimum Allocation of Consumer's Expenditure," is an attempt to develop a theory of op- timum allocation of consumed expendi- ture without the usual difficulties con- nected with the conventional marginal utility approach and with the controversy over the ordinal and cardinal concept of utility. The second project deals with the problem of labor allocation and eco- nomic growth in Red China. Based on the analysis as developed in this project, the theory may be used to explain, at least partially, why the rate of economic growth in Red China during the past ten years has been faster than the rate of economic growth in India. Former Mission Worker Addresses Student Body The Rev. Calvin H. Reber, Jr., a pro- fessor of Christian missions at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, was the first guest chapel speaker at Valley this semester, on September 20. A graduate of Lebanon Valley and Union Seminary in New York City, Rev. Reber spoke on "The Act of Pass- ing Through." He spent the years 1939-41 and 1946- 5 1 as a missionary in an area near Hong Kong, China, which is now under Com- munist domination. During the war years he served as pastor of the Second EUB Church in Palmyra. Rev. Reber joined the faculty of United Theological Semi- nary in 1951. Ursinus Dean Speaks At Frosh Convocation Mr. William S. Pettit, Dean of Ursinus College, delivered the address at the opening Freshman Convocation on Sep- tember 12, 1960. Dean Pettit received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania. He has been associated with Ursinus College since 1933; and he has served as a chemistry professor, as Director of Admissions, and as Dean of the College. Mr. Pettit has been a consultant in the Experimental Program for Teacher Edu- cation of Temple University. He is a trustee of the Montgomery County His- torical Society, a former vice chairman of the Montgomery County Red Cross, president of the Worcester School Au- thority, and a vestryman of St. James Episcopal Church, Perkiomen. Lockwood Will Act As Chem Dept. Head Dr. Karl Lockwood has been appointed acting chairman of the department of chemistry during the absence of Dr. Howard A. Neidig, who is working with the committee preparing the Chemical Bond Approach to Chemistry course for high school students. Dr. Lockwood, who holds the position of assistant professor of chemistry, is a graduate of Muhlenberg College. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell Uni- versity. Dr. Neidig has been granted a leave of absence until September of 1961 in order that he might participate on a full- time basis with this experimental pro- gram endeavoring to develop a new type of introductory course to high school chemistry. He has been working with this program on a part-time basis since 1958, when he joined Dr. L. E. Strong of Earlham College, Dr. L. B. Clapp of Brown University, Dr. A. H. Livering of Reed College, and Dr. M. K. Wilson of Tufts University. He has played a large part in the development of laboratory experiments for the program and has as- sisted in writing the textbooks that are now used on an experimental basis, but which are subject for future revision. In describing the aims and objectives of CBA, Dr. Neidig points out that it does not stress memorization of chemical values as do traditional chemistry courses. "We are now concerned with the 'why' in chemical reaction. In our new textbooks we are asking students to develop the structure of atoms and molecules, and from this consider properties." "We want the student to see why water has characteristics by considering the way the atoms are arranged in the mole- cule. This puts us in business to have the student predict in situations where they have no basic information." "Students For Kennedy" Greet Their Candidate James Reilly and Robert Hartnett, Jr., co-chairmen of LVC's new campaign or- ganization, "Students for Kennedy," wel- comed Senator John F. Kennedy to Leba- non, Friday morning, September 16. Also sitting on the platform with Ken- nedy were Dale Chernich, a member of the campus organization, and Mr. Alex J. Fehr, a faculty member who is co- chairman of the Lebanon County "Citi^ zens for Kennedy." A crowd estimated at 5,000 gathered in Market Square, Lebanon, to greet the Democratic presidential nominee.

See "Service Exams," page 4 Valley Students Work On Research Projects With grants from various scientific companies, seven LVC students worked in research programs this summer. John Adams, Kenneth Feather, Carl Jarboe, Patricia Leader, Kenneth Light, David Magnelli, and Barbara Wogisch participated in the program. The grants totaled $10,640 and spon- sored two research projects directed by Dr. Karl Lockwood. "Oxidation on Pi- nene" and "Studies on the Reduction of Alkyl-Aryl Ketones" were the two topics studied. Three other students worked in the LVC chemistry department in coopera- tion with the experimental Chemical Bond Approach to chemistry course. Jo- seph Deitz, Clark Hoffman, and John Metka evaluated the laboratory experi- ments that are devised for use in the Chemical Bond Approach laboratory manual. Deitz, Hoffman, Leader and Metka are graduates of LVC with the class of 1960. Dan Fritz Debuts In SCA Comedy The SCA, as part of Freshman Week activities, presented a three-act musical comedy, all facets of which were "bor- rowed" from various sources, in Engle Hall Friday, September 16. "The Devil and Daniel Fritz" told the story of typical freshman Dan Fritz and his diabolic deal which made him a tem- porary sophomore. The devil, Don Drumheller, bargained with Fritz (Larry Cisney) with the help of Dan's girl friend, played by Leann Grebe. Musical support was supplied by a nine-piece orchestra with organ, the lat- ter played by Jackie Miller. The produc- tion was written by Jean Kauffman and Pete Riddle, and directed by the latter. Lebanon Valley Profs Accept Faculty Awards Four members of the Lebanon Valley College faculty have been granted faculty awards for 1960-61. They are Dr. George G. Struble, chairman of the department of English; Dr. Elizabeth GefFen, assistant professor of history; John H. Fritz, assistant profes- sor of history; and Thomas A. Lanese, as- sistant professor of strings, conducting and theory. The awards carry with them a small stipend to enable the professors to broaden their academic preparation through further education, travel or re- search in their particular fields of study. Rep. Will iams Speaks At Valley GOP Rally Alan Williams, Bucks County repre- sentative for the state legislature, spoke to the LVC Young Republicans for Nix- on rally Monday, September 26, in Philo Hall. He predicted that the votes of college students in the coming Presidential elec- tion will decide the outcome in several states. Students over 21 years of age can vote by registering in their home districts and then by mailing in their votes at least seven days before the election. Mr. Williams urged the interest and participation of college students in then- respective parties. Campus youth organi- zations are considered excellent training grounds for future political activity. These campus groups are desperately needed and can exert pressure on the legislators to lower the voting age to 18. In the 45-minute session he also ex- pressed concern that the handful of stu- dents attending the rally would not be the only ones who were interested in the political race. Mr. Williams was graduated from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1950 and from the law school in 1953. The thirty-three year old legislator is the youngest Republican county representative ever elected from Bucks County and is the first to be en- dorsed by organized labor. Also attending the rally was Jack Selt- zer, Lebanon County representative in the state legislature. \AA Membership Includes Mr. Riley Professor Robert C. Riley became a member of the Cameron McLeod So- ciety of the National Association of Ac- countants at the group's Forty First In- ternational Conference held in New Or- leans, June 20-23, 1960. He had served as a National Director of the NAA during 1959-1960. Profes- sor Riley will be the Society's Harris- burg Chairman of Attendance for the NAA Regional Conference in Washing- ton, October 27-29, 1960. Mr. Riley has also been notified of his promotion to Major in the United States Air Force Reserves. The Lebanon Valley professor is a graduate of the Command and Staff Course of the Air University and of the Economics of Na- tional Security Course of the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. Currently, he is a Statistical Services Officer and Education and Training Staff Officer in the Air Force Reserves. Mr. Riley was a visiting lecturer in ac- counting during the past summer session at New York University. PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 29, 1960 HELPING DREAMERS TO DREAM KEEPS AMERICA STRONG "We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams . . ; Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world forever, it seems." Arthur O'Shaughnessy, The Music-Makers Throughout our history as a nation — indeed, throughout the history of all mankind — it has been the dreamers of better ways of doing things who have made our lives more worthwhile. And yet the dreamer of today, if he is to con- tribute to the betterment of his fellow man, must be an educated dreamer. He must have assimilated the knowledge and undergone the training that enable him to dream beyond the present, beyond the knowledge we have now. Can there possibly be a better reason for strengthening the sources of knowledge — colleges and universities? It seems incredible that a society such as ours which has profited so vastly from an accumula- tion of knowledge — and from the fulfillment of dreams — should allow anything to threaten these wellsprings of our learning. The crisis that confronts our colleges threatens to weaken seriously their ability to transmit the knowledge and to encourage the dreams that will keep America strong. The crisis is composed of several elements: a salary scale that is driving away from teaching the kind of person best qualified to teach; over- crowded classrooms; and mounting college appli- cations that will double in less than ten years. Help the colleges and universities of your choice. Help them plan for stronger, better-paid faculties and for expansion. The returns will be greater than you think. If you want fo know more about what the college crisis means to you, and what you can do to help, write for a free booklet to: HIGHER EDUCATION, Box 36, Times Square Station, New York 36, N.Y.

Returning from last year's squad are Captain Liz Gluyas, junior, and Fran Niedzialek, sophomore. Doris, a junior, is majoring in music education and is planning for a high school teaching career. She is secretary of the Political Science Club and a mem- ber of Clio, Women's Athletic Associa- tion, Alpha Psi Omega, and the Concert Choir. Swimming and tennis are her favorite recreations. Doris taught swim- ming and water skiing at a camp this summer. She is from Irvington, New Jersey. Pat, who comes from Abington, is a sophomore majoring in elementary edu- cation. She has been a manager of the women's basketball team and is presently secretary of Clio. Pat is also a member of WAA and PSEA. During the sum- mer Pat was a waitress. She favors swimming and dancing for pastime ac- tivities. Nancy, a sophomore from Harrisburg, is majoring in elementary education with a minor in music. She is active in the Inter-Society Council, WAA, Clio, and basketball. This summer she was a life- guard. Two of Nancy's pet pastimes are swimming and basketball. Libet is a freshman majoring in ele- mentary education and hails from Sink- ing Springs. She is active in hockey and lists that as one of her favorite sports along with swimming. She worked as a camp counselor this summer. Judy, a freshman from Annville, is preparing for the medical technology field. She participates in sports and was a waitress this summer. Wilkes Game Continued from Page 1 linebacker Ray Marchakitus intercepted a partially deflected pass by freshman quarterback Wes MacMillan. Mar- chakitus returned the ball 35 yards for the score. Fullback Marvin Antinnes ran the ball over for the 2 extra points. The score remained 8-7 until with a two yard dive, Les Holstein climaxed a 46 yard march which had featured the running of Vern Magnuson and a recep- tion of a 24 yard pass to the 4 yard line by Hi Fitzgerald. The placement by John Yajko split the uprights, making the score 14-8. Wilkes then went to the air, but to no avail, as the game ended LVC, 14, Wilkes, 8. Future Law Students To Take Examinations The Law School Admission Test re- quired of applicants for admission to a number of leading American law schools will be given at more than 100 centers throughout the United States on the mornings of November 12, 1960, February 18, April 15, and August 5, 1961. Mr. Ralph Shay of the LVC history department has written to the Education- al Testing Service, which prepares and administers the tests, for their Bulletin of Information. The Bulletin, which con- tains an application for the exam, will be distributed among interested stud- ents. Candidates for admission to next year's classes in law are encouraged to take the November or the February test, if possible. Further details concerning the exami- nation are available from Mr. Shay. Service Exams Continued from Page 3 Interested persons may obtain further information about the test and how to apply from Civil Service Announcement No. 240. Announcements and applica- tion forms may be obtained from college placement offices, many post offices throughout the country, civil service re- gional offices, or from the U. S. Civil Service Commission, Washington 25, D. C. Dutch Flier by Chip Burkhardt The Flying Dutchmen football squad for 1960 has among its members five seniors who are playing their last season for the Blue and White. Dave Miller, who hails from York, is now in his fourth year of varsity compe- tition. His teammates saw fit to elect the 5'9", 195-pound guard co-captain for this season. Dave also serves as captain of Valley's wrestling team. 215-pound, 6'1" center and tackle Stan Kaczorowski comes to LVC from Eli- zabeth, New Jersey. Serving as team co- captain with Miller, Stan is also in his fourth year on the varsity squad. Coming from nearby Palmyra, flashy halfback Les Holstein, playing his fourth year of varsity ball, is already proving his worth to this season's squad. Stand- ing 5'11" and 160 pounds, this all-around athlete holds letters in football, baseball and track. During the last two sum- mers Les attended the Fellowship of Christian Athletes meetings, representing LV last year in Estes Park, Colorado. Paul Longreen reported for football lor the first time last season, and earned his letter by the end of the season. In addition, Paul is a member of the wres- tling squad. He stands 5'10", weighs 180 pounds and comes from Grantville, Pa. Speedster Vern Magnuson, from Har- risburg, is beginning his fourth year of varsity competition, playing in the half- back position. Hampered by injuries dur- ing the last five games last season, 5'8", 180-pound Vern has already made a good showing in this year's opening home game with Wilkes. Kneeling, from lert: Dave Miner, stan Kaczorowski; standing, from left: Les Holstein, Paul Longreen, Vern Magnu- son. Hock ey Team Drops First Game To MSC The Lebanon Valley College women's hockey team opened their season on Wednesday, September 28, by playing host to Millersville State College. Mil- lersville won by a score of 4-2. Regina Juno scored two goals for Leb- anon Valley. Nancy Thompson and Faye Kreamer scored two points apiece for MSC. Joan Myers is captain of the LV team. Two freshmen, Libet Vastine and Vinnie Beckner, are playing varsity hockey this year, along with Carol Baxter, a transfer student. Returning experienced players are Re- gina Juno, Joan Myers, Gloria Fitzkee, Elaine Walter, Kaye Cassel, Pat Shonk, Linda Weber, Arbelyn Fox and Mary Bollman. Valley Graduates Teach In Penna. Bill DeLiberty, Doug Miller and Karl Wesolowski, all members of the 1959 football squad, are teaching and coaching in the Central Pennsylvania area. Bill DeLiberty, from Rutherford Heights, who quarterbacked the football squad, also played varsity baseball and basketball. He is now a member of the faculty at Lower Dauphin High School in Hummelstown. Doug Miller, a Navy veteran, played varsity end in last year's football squad. Doug, who was graduated from LVC in September, is now teaching and coaching at Palmyra High School. Varsity guard Karl Wesolowski joined the faculty at Wilson Joint High School of Berks County in September. 1 1 s I c c b c a V( u rr K Ol m in G Si Pi w se tic cu vi< de an els ari to tie ba: thi era 3 Pei spi hal An syb gar are T nor beli rigl in mai and A farr of r old- fash or dev< effic k chai strat ticul seat gaso Ferg coml Ai teres Chil. scho< educ yard nite ; tain relatf ment ^lain catioi been nonit On comp most fondr aggre clergj gard self-n sisten Way La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 29, 1960 PAGE FIVE Rel igions of the U. S.A. Mennonites Mix Simplicity With Horse Sense And Hard Work Noted for their agricultural skills and for their homespun simplicity of dress and doctrine, 250,000 American Mennonites, many of whom are now urbanized and surprisingly modern, attempt to live according to the literal teachings of Jesus. If a Mennonite is slapped, he will actually turn the other cheek. If he finds a burglar in his home, he will try to persuade the criminal to leave — but won't use force. Though Mennonite farms are productive and prosperous, their owners live simply, so that they will have greater resources with which to feed the hungry and clothe the naked as Jesus instructed. Despite this seeming austerity, Mennonite lives are far from dull. How many other Americans still have the pleasure of riding a horse-drawn wagon? What other group knows the fun of a "snitzing" — an apple-peeling party? Where else, besides Mennonite communities, do all the neighbors still pitch in, as in frontier days, to build a house for a newly married couple? Mennonite farmers did in fact play a role in the pioneer settlement and de- velopment of American land. But their unique way of life is a legacy from a much earlier group of pioneers, the "Anabaptists," so called because they be- lieved that only adults, and not infants or children, should be baptized. The movement, which began in Switzerland in 1535, spread rapidly to Holland and Germany, where it was led by Menno Simons, whose first name was soon ap- plied to all his followers. But the Anabaptist-Mennonites, who went much further than any existing sect in a return to the "original" prac- tices of the first Christians, were perse- cuted by the groups for their unorthodox views. More than 5,000 were put to death during the first ten years of the movement's existence. First Colony Settles in Pa. Finding refuge on wasteland no one else wanted, the harried farmers turned arid north German and Prussian land in- to fertile garden spots through their pa- tient, skillful cultivation. In 1683, a band of these fanners moved again— this time to Pennsylvania, where the tol- erant Quakers had already settled. More Mennonites followed, and the Pennsylvania colony expanded rapidly, spilling over the other states. Today, half the world's Mennonites live in America, with large numbers in Penn- sylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Michi- gan and the Dakotas. Smaller groups are in nearly every other state. Today, about 40% of American Men- nonites are still farmers, many of whom believe that life on the land is the only right life for a man. In the States as in Europe, they have literally turned many desolate areas into lands of milk and honey. As with all successful farmers today, farming to the Mennonites is a matter of mind as well as muscle. Despite their old-world garb, there's nothing old- fashioned about their farm management or their knowledge of new machinery developments that make farming more efficient. Many Mennonites are ingenious me- chanics. At farm equipment demon strations, the young Mennonites in par- ticular can be seen sitting on the driver's seat discussing the difference between a gasoline and diesel model of a Massey- Ferguson tractor, or testing the latest combines. Education a Family Affair Another big area of Mennonite in- terest is how best to educate the young. Children go to Mennonite elementary school, but after that, in many cases, education continues in the kitchen, farm- yard and field. Because some Menno- nite schools did not teach geography, cer- tain forms of history, and other subjects related to the material world, govern- ment school officials sometimes com- plained about "lower standards of edu- cation." Consequently, changes have been made in the curriculum of Men- nonite schools. On the whole, Mennonite beliefs are compatible with those of their neighbors, most of whom regard Mennonites with fondness and respect. These patient, un- aggressive farmers have given what clergymen of many different faiths re- gard as an excellent example of love and self-restraint, in their preaching and con- sistent practice of the conviction that the Way is to "love thy neighbor." For the IS 20 Student Below are listed 1 1 quotations all hav- ing to do with academic life. Seven out of eleven and you're Phi Bete material; six correct and you're Dean's List; five or less, and you'd better hit the books a little harder. 1. The learned are seldom pretty fel- lows, and in many cases their appear- ance tends to discourage a love of study in the young. 2. Note too that a faithful study of the liberal arts humanizes character and permits it not to be cruel. 3. Of making many books there is no end; and much studying is a weariness of the flesh. 4. Educational relations make the strongest tie. 5. For the student there is, in its sea- son, no better place than the saddle, and no better companion than the rifle or the oar. 6. Order and simplification are the first steps toward the mastery of a sub- ject — the actual enemy is the unknown. 7. No profit grows where is no pleas- ure 'taen; in brief, sir, study what you most affect. 8. Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding. 9. Soap and education are not as sud- den as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run. 10. I wish that some one would give a course in how to live. It can't be taught in the colleges; that's perfectly obvious, for college professors don't know any better than the rest of us. 11. If I were founding a university, I would found first a smoking room; then when I had a little more money in hand I would found a dormitory; then after that, ... a decent reading room and a li- brary. After that, if I still had more money that I couldn't use, I would hire a professor and get some textbooks. (Answers on page 6, column 4) DUMP DREXEL Language Professor Comes To LVC With European Background Two cultures blend in the arrival of Dr. Ferenc Schwanauer at Lebanon Val- ley College as the assistant professor in the department of languages. Dr. Schwanauer, born in the Hungar- ian community of Zsanbek, near Buda- pest, studied in school systems very dif- ferent from those most LVC students have known. Hungary was the scene of his boyhood learning. The setting later shifted to Germany, where this thirteen- year-old of Hungarian and German par- entage began his gymnasium (secondary school preparing for the university) edu- cation. He attained his qualifying certificate, known as a maturum, in 1954; and his university career at Tubingen and Stutt- gart culminated in 1959 with the award- ing of his Ph.D. for his thesis work en- titled Die Literaturtheorie Friedrich Niet- zsche's (Friedrich Nietzsche's Theory of Literature). Dr. Schwanauer knows life in a Com- munist-dominated land. He escaped the dictatorial demands and cruelties in the midst of the Hungarian Revolution. This is in his past, and he wants such experi- ence to remain in the past, free from the scrutiny of recounting and safe from the possibility of recurring. He prefers now to channel his thoughts and emotions into his new life, with his American wife and two children. For the students of LVC, Dr. Schwa- nauer is a man who avowedly loves his profession. He expects from his pupils "discipline, energy, and the will to learn." To this attitude of eager seriousness of purpose, he is willing to respond with his knowledge, his enthusiasm for the subjects he teaches, and his amiable readiness to meet and help the people behind the names in the roll book. Dr. Schwanauer's hope is, in his own words, "to touch the watchfulness" of his American acquaintances, to incite in them, inobstrusively and without osten- tation, an attitude of caution in their ideas and in their contacts with Com- munism so that they may avoid totali- tarian infiltration and the mistakes of the peoples now subsisting in fear under the Communistic regime. The blending of the cultures will cli- max in the spring of 1962. Dr. Schwa- nauer will then officially become a citi- zen of the United States. Frosh Girls Write Tales Of Initiation Freshman initiation is always a pro- gram which evokes strong emotions. Rec- ognizing this fact, the White Hats re- quested that a few freshman girls cap- ture the great sentiment of the moment in writing. Following are excerpts from the freshmen's appreciative essays on the sophomores. "The big question seems to be, 'Why do the freshmen like the sophomores?' Well, why shouldn't we? After all, ev- eryone is human/ "They want us to get accustomed to the air raid drills the Civil Defense spon- sors. In fact they set aside one whole day to help us with this. They really made this a simple operation too. We merely had to put a waste can on our heads whenever we heard a whistle* This I feel is a very good idea and our White Hats thought of it. I personally think this should be suggested to the C. D. This had a twofold purpose; we now know what an ostrage (sic) feels like when he puts his head in a hole. So in the course of one day we learned about air raids and ostrages (sic, sic, sic)." "In general, all sophomores seem to be nice people. But, I do not wish to be misunderstood. I have observed some that I like only because I have to. For instance, I was awakened the other night by a shrill whistle coming from the other side of the campus. Upon investigation, I discovered the freshman class of boys assembled outside for their hike. Now the only reason I can like the sopho- mores for doing this is that they chose to do it to the boys that evening instead New LV Philosophy Prof Tells Of Past Experiences Dr. Martin Foss, a native of Germany and a Visiting Professor of Philosophy under the sponsorship of the John Hay Whitney Foundation, will teach Greek philosophy, aesthetics, and the humanities at Lebanon Valley College for the 1960-61 academic season. Although he studied philosophy and law at Berlin, Munich, and in Paris, Dr. Foss considers himself primarily a philosopher. He prepared for law at his father's preference; his father regarded a philosopher's life as financially insecure, especially for a young man beginning his career and family. Inspired by the experience of study- Politics Continued from Page 2 It didn't take long to prove that this just wouldn't work. When political par- ties began to form in the 1790's, the two- vote system made it practically inevitable that the President would be a member of one party and the Vice President of an- other (as happened in 1796, when Fed- eralist John Adams came in first and Democrat-Republican Thomas Jefferson second). Or the winner and the runner- up might be men who couldn't stand each other personally, even though they were members of the same party (like Thomas Jefferson and his Vice President, Aaron Burr, elected in 1800). So in 1804, the Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution provided for separate balloting for the two offices. By then, electors from each state were being pledged in advance to the Presidential candidates already chosen by their par- ties. And by the 1820's, most states had established universal suffrage and pro- vided for popular election of electors — which meant popular election of the President. The balloting of the Electoral College had become the mere formality it is to- day. (An elector still can, however, theoretically, vote for anybody he pleases — and this happened as recently as 1956, when an Alabama elector decided to cast his vote not for Eisenhower or Steven- son, but for a gentleman named Walter B. Jones!) Credit for the invention of the party nominating convention, that glorious three-ring circus of American political life, goes to a minor party with few other claims to fame, the Anti-Mason party. The Anti-Masons held the first convention in 1830, and the two major parties of the day, the National Repub- licans and the Democrats, both took up the idea in time for the 1832 Presidential elections. What can you do in a Presidential year? 1. Know the candidates and the issues. 2. Don't fail to vote. 3. Enroll in a party and vote in its primary elections — that's where choice of Presidential nominees begins. 4. Make a contribution of money to your party or to the campaign committee of the candidate you favor — your dona- tion and those of thousands of other private citizens can keep your candidate free from financial obligation to special interest groups. 5. Be a "campaign committee of one" — talk up your candidate to your family, friends and co-workers, and remind them to vote. And, the Voter's Handbook advises, don't listen to or spread unfavorable rumors about any candidate. Anything you don't read in the news columns of a reputable newspaper almost certainly isn't true. Remember, when you go to the polls this November, you'll be an employer choosing the best man to handle one of the world's toughest jobs — President of the United States. of the girls. It's always nicer when some- one else goes first." "One of the most exemplary items showing the sophomores' attentiveness toward the frosh is our dinks. These pre- cious little possessions are actually bless- ings in disguise. If you happen to be the unfortunate sufferer of some horrible disease which has left you in a state of baldness, who would know?" "So far 7 have enjoyed the program very much. I get the biggest kick out of writing to my friends about Air Raid Day and our little hike. Not that I am hinting for any more — please get that straight." ing with world-famous Henri Bergson and Max Scheler, however, Dr. Foss's first desire was to teach philosophy, and following the first World War he secured a university position. A young teacher's salary in those post-war years was hardly enough to support himself and his wife, and so he became a judge, satisfying his love for philosophy by writing for the leading German philosophical magazine, Logos. As a judge, he found himself in the midst of political conflicts which raged in the courts at that time, and he found he could better serve his ideals of justice and freedom by free-lance work in law. In both of these capacities he enjoyed success. The rise of Hitler in 1933 caused the Foss family to take refuge in Paris, where Mrs. Foss, an artist and the mother of two sons, established a home for refugee boys. During this time, Dr. Foss commuted daily from Paris to Ber- lin, engaging in anti-Nazi underground activities. After four years of eluding the Nazis and the Gestapo, Dr. Foss gave up his dangerous job "for the good of my family" and left for America. Accepts Job at Haverford In New York, he tried his hand at business for a period of three years, but happily closed up shop when offered a teaching position at Haverford College. He taught there until 1958, when he re- tired. While in the Haverford area he served as a minister for the Religious Society of Friends. Dr. Foss has published three books: The Idea of Perfection in the Western World, Symbol and Metaphor in Human Experience, and Abstraction and Reality. The first two, published by the Prince- ton Uniyersity Press, are in English; the third, in German, was recently published in Germany. Dr. Foss hopes for a pub- lication of an English version of the book in the near future. Symbol and Metaphor is available to interested stu- dents in the LVC library. Before his appointment to Missoula State University, Montana, last year, Dr. Foss spent a year abroad. In Japan and Burma he studied oriental philosophy and Buddhism; six months in India al- lowed him to examine Indian thought first-hand. At Sanscrit College in Cal- cutta he was awarded an honorary scholarship recognition. A stopover in Egypt enabled him to acquaint himself with Egyptian art. Dr. Foss' two sons, Oliver and Lukas, are known in the art and music worlds. Oliver has his own art studio in Paris; Lukas, a young Los Angeles composer, was a piano soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is now profes- sor of symphony at UCLA. Leonard Bernstein will present some of Lukas's compositions next month in a concert of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Lukas has also written operas and records commercially for Decca Records. The John Hay Whitney Foundation, which in cooperation with the New York Foundation is making Dr. Foss' services available to LVC, was established in 1952 with a two-fold purpose: (1) to honor individuals who have not only distinguished themselves by a lifetime of inspired classroom teaching, but also have retained the physical and mental vigor to continue their important con- tribution to American youth, and (2) to strengthen teaching of the humanities in independent liberal arts colleges throughout the country. A freshman doesn't know, but he doesn't know that he doesn't know. A sophomore doesn't know, and he knows it. A junior knows, but he doesn't know he knows. But a senior, he knows and he knows it. PAGE SIX La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 29, 1960 Island Paradise Home To Hawaiian Freshman Kenward Chung Young Lee, a mem- ber of this year's freshman class, is an American boy with an air of the inter- national. To most of us Wahiawa, Hon- olulu, Oahu, in the Hawaiian Islands, sounds like a lovely, almost-mythical place in a Pacific Ocean paradise, but to Kenward, it is merely home. Kenward has lived in Wahiawa, a mil- itary reservation about twenty-five miles from Honolulu, all his life. His father is a storage officer at the Army's Schofield Barracks. Kenward, his two brothers and his sister are third generation Americans. One of the few vestiges of their Ko- rean ancestry retained by the Lees is that of removing shoes before entering the house. Kenward points out that most third-generation Americans, of which there are many in the multi-racial Oahu, do not even know their native tongue. The majority of students from Ken- ward's 2,000-student high school attend the largest of Hawaii's four colleges, the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Ken- ward explains his desire to go away to school by simply stating, "I was on a little rock so I wanted on the bigger one." West coast colleges were eliminat- ed because "too many local kids go there." On the recommendation of Mrs. Mel- vin Gruber, "a resident of Middletown, Pennsylvania, and a very dear friend of the family," Kenward chose Lebanon Valley as the college at which to major in chemistry as a pre-medical student. He came by jet to Chicago, then by regular commercial plane to Pennsylva- nia. The short time of his trip will seem even more amazing when compared to the many months before he will return home for his summer vacation and the years before he will return to practice medicine there. He has spent the past two summers picking pineapples. This is popular summer work for both boys and girls. Kenward had anticipated coldness when he left his warm island to come to the mainland. In the physical climate he has found that. Our sixty-degree temper- atures would be almost record lows in Hawaii. Nevertheless, Kenward is cheer- fully anticipating autumn and winter in the eastern United States. Part of this cheerful outlook comes from the discovery which Hawaii's am- bassador to America has made about the social climate around Lebanon Valley College. "Someone told me," he states, "that this is the coldest part of the coun- try, but this hasn't seemed true for me. It is really friendly." Kenward has come to the mainland for an education. It seems that he is also giving an education to those of us who know little about our fiftieth state. With a tolerant smile he tells of the amazed look of the upperclassman who found out that Kenward could speak good English even though he had lived in Hawaii all his life. Have You Seen This Young Girl ? Music Dept. Announces Braun Memorial Award Robert W. Smith, chairman of the music department at Lebanon Valley, has announced the establishment of the Dr. Robert Braun Memorial Music Achievement Scholarship with a principal investment of $5,000 to be held in trust by the Pottsville School District. The scholarship winner will be an- nounced prior to the class day exercises in June of 1960. The first award will be given to a Pottsville High School graduate in the spring of 1961. The only specified qualification for the award is that the applicants must be in the upper third of their graduating class. The chairman of the music de- partment, Mr. Robert Smith, will decide which applicant is musically qualified to receive the scholarship. The scholarship has been established in memory of the late Dr. Robert Braun, Founder and Director of the Braun Schools of Music, Pottsville, by his widow, Frances Zerbey Braun. ; This modest young lady, a perfect ex- ample of proper decorum displayed in Annville on Sunday by Lebanon Valley girls, is missing from our campus. Last seen 1866. Reward. I've Got A Problem For all of LV's students of ancient temple riddles, since there are so many, the first offering of this column this year reads as follows. (Answer next issue.) An oracle in a certain temple always answers questions asked by its faithful followers through the mouths of three gods. Unfortunately, their stone images are all alike, and no one knows which god is which. One is the God of Truth, who never lies. One is the God of Falsehood, who never tells the truth. The third is named the God of Diplomacy, whose answers are sometimes true and sometimes not. One afternoon a wretched begger came to the temple, intent upon gaining fame by discovering which god was which. He asked the statue on the left, "Which god sits next to thee?" "The God of Truth," was the answer. Next he asked the center god, "Who art Thou?" The answer came back, "The God of Diplomacy." Then he turned to the image on the right and asked, "Who sits next to thee?" He was told, "The God of Falsehood." Armed with this information, the beg- gar went forth among his people as an interpreter of the oracle. Which gods were which? (La Vie welcomes the sub- mission of solutions and will print the names of successful puzzle solvers. An- swers may be placed in the mailbox of the Student Personnel Office.) The Edge Of Blight Although this column was originally intended as a fashion column, we feel that there is another feature of our cul- ture which should be brought to the at- tention of all serious students and made prerequisite for I.S. 20 students in partic- ular. We are speaking, of course, of the dramatic presentation which can be seen on Channel 8 on any afternoon between ! 4:45 and 5 o'clock. (Just before "Quick- I Draw McGraw" and "Huckleberry I Hound," with which we are sure some of our less plebeian and more discrimi- nating colleagues are acquainted.) For legal reasons, we shall refer to the production as merely "The Edge of Blight" (...organ crescendo...) Of course, any similarity between our fic- tional label and the equally stirring title of the actual production is purely pre- meditational. As the title indicates, "The Edge of Blight" depicts tragedy in the true Aris- totleian manner. The lack of unity caus- ed by the 23%-hour intermission be- tween each 15 minute act is compensated for by the skillful narrative technique be- fore and after each episode. And, as you shall see, a full 23% hours is necessary for complete recovery from the powerful emotional appeal of "... Blight." First a word about our heroine, Dor- othy Crackanthorpe, a girl like any girl (what else?). Dorothy helps to give "The Edge of Blight" its universal scope and empathy through the very typicality of her life situation. Our unblemished heroine (recently elected "Clearasil Girl of the Month" by her local Acne Store) lives with her fa- ther, the police chief of Gurgling Springs, a small town in the heart of the fan belt, blooming with innocence and a modest prosperity, though occasionally disrupted (but never corrupted) by an undercurrent of evil (like the time that Harold, the traveling salesman, tried, without success of course, to date Doro- thy). Dorothy, like any girl of nineteen, spends her time supervising the staff of household servants, entertaining at infor- mal lawn parties, running the white ele- phant booth at church bazaars, flying to New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles for weekends, and occasionally working as secretary for Jed Taylor (who is, nat- urally, deeply and virtuously in love with her). Like every girl of nineteen, Dorothy is constantly surrounded by a bevy of ad- mirers — playwrights, fashion experts, make-up advertisers, Clearasil Girl of the Month talent scouts, and, of course, that intimate clique of beaux — Mergetroid, the mysterious Russian Mazurka dancer; Percy, the Southern Rhodesian diplomat; Samson Hardwell, the poet; and, of LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS Quotation Solutions (For the IS 20 Student) 1.

And now, of course, there is Victor — itinerant play- boy — who only today has confessed his genuine regenerative love for Dorothy: Victor (Tremulously): Have you ever thought of me ... as anything more than a . . . (sigh) . . . friend? (Dramatic pause in- dicated by dramatic quaver of organ playing "Home, Home on the Range.") Dorothy (with a sharp intake of breath — Whoosh): Victor! Victor (His heart leaps down stage right): Dorothy!. . .until now I've been wasting my life . . . (gasp) . . . but you've been a mother, a sister, an aunt, a grandmother, even a friend to me.

Victor (manfully): I can forgive and forget, dear (Swallow) . . I won't take no for an answer. I'll make you love me! (Pause for organ solo — "Fight Song" — as Dorothy gropes for handkerchief). Dorothy (tenderly): Victor. . .You'll always be a friend to me, — but I . . . (choke) . . . can never love you. (She walks toward him, tearstreaked face up- lifted. They embrace in a passionate kiss.) Victor (with a toothy smile to audi- ence): So what if she doesn't love me? (Organ music soars to a joyous crescen- do as Polident commercial begins.) And now, dear friends, overcome with emotion at this homey scene which touches each one of our hearts, we soar out on the wings of the organ music. For, truly, what more can we say? 'ONE OF OUK FINEST fi?E5MA\Atf C00ft5£lOf& TO £AP/AT£ COUFWBbte * VZUST WITH THESE **»JMfi61SW AWAY flZDV\ HCWE/ COME To The TOMORROW NIGHT Ten Simple Steps Can Mean Clearer, Faster Typewriting Keys to greater efficiency and higher pay, if you type, may be right there on your typewriter. A recent study by In- ternational Paper Company reveals that nine typists in every ten can improve their work — either get more done, save energy, or both — just by heeding these ten tips from typing teachers and top typists. 1. Devote three minutes at the start of each day to sprucing up your typewriter. Wipe off all the exposed parts with a soft dry cloth. Get into corners with a long handled brush. For cleaning type — a necessary operation if your let- ters are to have a clear-cut appeal — use a dry bristle brush, brushing toward you to keep dust from falling into the me- chanism. 2. Carbon copies needn't smear your reputation as a top typist. When insert- ing several sheets of paper, to make sure they go in evenly, fit the leading edge into a folded length of paper or into the flap of an envelope. Release the paper feed by using the release lever and insert the pack of paper behind the platen. Then return the release lever to its nor- mal position. 3. Protect the platen from undue wear, and get better original and carbon im- pressions, by putting a backing or second sheet at the bottom of the pack. 4. Use the tabulator. Properly set, it saves countless strokes of single spac- ing and provides a speedy short cut for statements, reports, paragraph indenta- tions, subheadings and quoted materials. 5. The wide open spaces are the sec- retary's friend. A short single-spaced letter looks forlorn and inconsequential on the page, and is difficult to read. Type all first drafts triple space. This leaves plenty of room to write in corrections and afterthoughts, and may save you an extra typing job. Guard against making the right margin wider than the left. It should be narrower, if anything. On the other hand, the bottom margin should be wider than the top. 6. Use the best quality paper you can find. 7. Erase erasure problems. When eras- ing a letter or word, always use a clean eraser and an eraser shield to prevent unsightly smears. A small piece of very fine sandpaper or an emery board will keep your eraser clean. Erase with a cir- cular motion, using light strokes, after first moving the carriage to right or left so that erasures won't fall into the ma- chine. White chalk or aspirin rubbed lightly over the erasure and dusted with a clean brush will disguise the corrected error. 8. When keys jam, separate them care- fully, one at a time. Don't ever use force. If you do, you risk bending the typebars out of alignment and ruining the appearance of your correspondence. 9. Here's a trick to help you insert a letter omitted from a word. First erase the whole word. Position the carriage so that the open space immediately fol- lowing the last letter of the preceding word is at the exact printing point. Hold down the space bar while you strike the first letter of the word; this gives you a partial space between the last word and the word you've erased. Release the space bar and depress it again while striking the second letter. Continue this until all the characters have been typed in. Using the back spacer isn't nearly as accurate. But it's best to practice this trick a few times before trying it out on correspondence. 10. For quick repeating of the same character across the page — periods, as- terisks, dashes — alternate using both hands instead of just one finger. Tap the key and space bar alternately. If you don't want space between the char- acters, start over, using the same key and space bar, but advance one space before starting. EXTRA! Jla Uie. Golleaiesute, 37th Year — No. 1-A Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna. Thursday, October 6, 1960 Junior From Will Feature Famous Dance Orchestra Valley's Les Holstein, '61, sprints across the goal ahead of fallen Dragons for his third touchdown in last Saturday's game. Dutchmen Slay Dragons In Home Contest, 40-8; Holstein, Magnuson Star The Lebanon Valley football squad, led by Les Holstein and Vern Magnu- son, ripped the Drexel Tech Dragons Saturday evening by a 40-8 score. In an early display of strength, Drex- el's Al Wagner returned the opening kickoff 33 yards before being brought down. The Dutchmen halted the drive, but Wagner intercepted a pass attempt by Roland Barnes, and returned the ball to the LVC 15. Three plays later Jim Holden carried the ball over the line from the three yard "ne, and added two extra points on a Pass from Holden to Wagner. The Valley squad fought back strong- ly, and in four plays advanced the ball from their own 33 to a goal with Les Holstein covering the last 59 yards. An attempt at two extra points was foiled. Holstein and Vern Magnuson teamed U P to drive the team to another goal, er <ding the quarter with a 12-8 tally. The second period featured a 25 yard Pass from Wes MacMillan to Larry Godshall for a score. Then, with two seconds remaining in the half, Hi Fitz- gerald rushed the Drexel quarterback Golden, who threw a blind pass. Stan Kaczorowski intercepted and took the ba " 30 yards for the TD. Having finished the half at 32-8, the Flying Dutchmen kept the Dragons at j^y until late in the fourth quarter, when "olstein intercepted a pass by Holden The 1961 Junior Prom will be co-sponsored by the Faculty-Student Council and the Junior Class, and will feature the music of a nationally-publicized dance orchestra. All students were given the opportunity to vote for their choice of the bands available for the date in question, May 6. The list included the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, directed by Warren Covington, the bands of Maynard Ferguson and Ralph Marterie, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, directed by Ray McKinley. Both the Faculty-Student Council and the Junior Class had been planning sep- arately to bring a big band to the LVC campus. When this came to the attention of both organizations, it was deemed impractical for both groups to attempt the same project. Considering the amount of money ($2800) involved, it was felt that a com- bination of forces would result in many advantages, including greater available funds for decorations and special acous- tical devices to make the gymnasium suitable for the volume of a large band. The dance will be known as the "Jun- ior prom, co-sponsored by the Faculty- Student Council and the Junior Class." All committees are to be co-chairmaned by a member of each organization. Tick- ets will sell for $4.00. Net cost to each organization is figured at a maximum of $900. It is believed by each of the organiza- tions involved that this co-sponsorship will result in the greatest benefit to the campus as a whole. The choice of the band, based upon student poll, and the theme of the Prom will be announced in a forthcoming issue of La Vie. Corrections, Please The correct listing of summer gradu- ates who received their degrees on Sep- tember 2 in Gossard Memorial Library is as follows: Edward Alexander, Samuel Butz, Cyril Kardos, Nancy Nickell, Kenneth Sea- man, Lewis Sheaffer, Fredric Vespe and Chester Wertsch, Jr., received B.A. de- grees. C. Thomas Mau was presented with a B.S. in economics and business adminis- tration; Patricia Petrullo, B.S. with a major in elementary education. Graduating with a major in science and receiving a B.S. were Joseph Dietz, Ronald Hovis, Marianne Kanoff, Paul Radcliffe, David Weiser, and Ray Wise. La Vie regrets that due to incomplete information a wrong listing appeared in the September 29 issue. Circle-K is Kiwanis Group The La Vie staff wishes to clarify a matter which seems to be widely misun- derstood on campus, the "Circle-K" or- ganization. This group is the college version of the high school "Key Club" and exists as a service club; it has no connection with the Kennedy supporters. The staff has been informed that, in fact, many "Circle" members are staunch Republicans, and in light of this, we apologize for having misrepresented them in our last issue! and ran 16 yards for the goal.

Letters To La Vie Questions Prom Decision To the Editors of La Vie: The recent decision of the junior class to spend $2800 for four hours' worth of dance music leads us to question the val- ues of those students who supported the decision. The term "status seeker" has, we realize, become hackneyed through overuse, yet this expression seems appli- cable in this situation. Even if impression-making is the ma- jor aim of life (a view with which we do not concur), the cost of about $700 an hour still seems a bit high. To begin with, what is the purpose of a band at the Junior Prom?

Letters To La Vie Continued from page 1 think of three possibilities: danceable music, entertainment, a means by which we can impress other colleges that Leb- anon Valley can afford a "name" band for its Prom. In examining these purposes, we as- sume that the first purpose is a necessity. The second purpose, while not absolutely essential, adds interest, although a mod- erately-priced band should be capable in this area. If not, the Hershey ballroom features each of the top bands annually (because they can afford it). In all likeli- hood, the band that plays at our Prom will also appear at Hershey at a lower cost. Now we come to the third purpose which, in our opinion, is totally invalid, regardless of the amount of money in- volved. Needless expenditure merely for the sake of impression is a mark of immaturity and extravagance. Unfortu- nately the junior class seems to have attached the greatest bulk of importance to the least valid motive, since neither of the other two purposes mentioned ne- cessitates the expenditure of several thou- sand dollars. Since at least one-third of this amount will come from the student activities fee, we feel that, as students, we may suggest some ways in which this money could be put to more profitable use. We would like to put forth some ideas which we feel will benefit the entire student body to a much greater degree than would the presence of a "name" band on campus: 1) Equipment necessary to move Val- ley's home games from Lebanon to home; 2) more funds allotted for more effective speakers in chapel; 3) increase of student work-aids; 4) larger allottments to organizations which serve campus needs; 5) contributions toward much- needed dormitories, an auditorium, etc. While $2800 would be no more than a beginning for most of these projects, at least it would be a beginning. If this letter seems overly-long, it is because we feel that the junior class decision was overly-hasty, and that the expenditure of such a large amount deserves more time and consideration than their ten- minute class meeting allowed. MARY LOU HAINES and SUE SMITH Man Wants an Answer To the Editors of La Vie: Who is going to pull in the Tug of War against the freshmen, the White Hats or the sophomores? According to all the tradition connected with the ini- tiation program, the same group that puts the frosh through their paces should also pull against them in the Tug. The frosh have nothing against the sophomore class; their battle is with the White Hats. Why should the sophs have to do all the work after the Hats have had all the fun? The Tug has always been a chance for the frosh to even the score with their persecutors, but I imagine even that con- cept of initiation has gone out the wind- ow. At least the frosh have one thought to console them. Even if they cannot pull against the White Hats, they always have the dunking afterwards. Keep your feet dry, Hats! TEX VANDERBACH AH In Favor To the editors of La Vie: Nearly every letter we see in this col- umn either gripes about something or cuts somebody up. At the risk of being nonconformist, we would like to place credit where credit is due. This year's football squad is nothing short of great. Their smashing victory over Drexel proved what great potential our boys have. They really gave the large crowd their money's worth. As for the band, they also deserve applause for their efforts, especially con- sidering the number of their rehearsals which have been rained out. Besides sounding better, their half-time routines show a lot of imagination. Congratulations are also in order to the White Hats, whose method of ter- minating the Frosh Frolics was a nice surprise for the freshmen. It was refresh- ing to hear them talk about a treat in- stead of a treatment! We wish the Debate Society a success- ful year as they endeavor to re-establish this form of competition at LVC. If their talent even approaches the level of their ambition, they will make their mark among campus organizations. Finally, we appreciate the time and efforts of those students who are helping to make the Chapel Choir a success. They and all Valleyites who participate in extra-curricular activities are helping to make our college a school of which to be proud. TOM, DICK and HARRY Knee-length skirts are fashion's craze, bringing back the good old gaze. The horridest of horror tales is some- times told by bathroom scales. (Read- er's Digest.) Accolades To A Neglected Group While much credit is due the marching band for its new precision drills, a very vital part of the organization, the front ranks of majorettes and color guard, should receive their share for their con- tribution to the appearance of the band. The majorettes consist of six twirlers, led by Betsy Black, who is featured ba- ton soloist. Betsy has studied baton un- der the instruction of Chet Morley for many years. The other girls in the group are Barbara Wogish, Roberta Dudas. Carol Bingman, Mildred Evans and Nan- cy Wagner. The group has not only added two new twirlers since last year, Millie and Nancy, it has also acquired new blue and white flag batons, adding a novelty touch to the band's routines. The color guard is headed by their captain, Brenda Brown, who carries the sword. Sophomore Kristine Kreider was chosen to be a member of the group last summer. Tryouts were held early in Sep- tember, and three freshman girls were also selected. These frosh include Judy Cassel, an alternate flag carrier, Linda Bell, an al- ternate gun carrier, and Hanna Pisle, who, along with junior Emily Bowman, is a flag carrier. The other members of the squad are Elizabeth Moore, Sylvia Bucher, Betsy McElwee and Lois Rank- The color guard made new uniforms for themselves last year and were pro- vided with new hats with high white plumes for the current football season. It is hoped that at all future appear- ances of the marching band, proper ap- preciation will be accorded these vital members of the organization. They drill as hard as the musicians to perfect their movements, and are the first section of the band to be seen as they enter the field at the beginning of each pre-garne and half-time show.

MAA Offers Annual LY Math Competition The Mathematical Association America will give the twenty-first Annual William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition at Lebanon Valley College, Saturday, December 3. All students who have taken mathe- matics through sophomore differential equations are eligible to take the test. The examination consists of a morn- ing part and an afternoon part of three hours each. The questions are construct- ed to test originality as well as technical competence. The elementary concepts of group theory, set theory, graph theory, and others taught in the Mathematics 10 course will be involved. The top three scores of each institu- tion will constitute a team score, and the first five team scores will bring prizes to the departments of $500, $400, $300, $200 and $100 in the order of their rank. In addition there will be prizes of $50, $40, $30, $20, and $10 awarded to each of the members of these teams according to the rank of the team. Also awarded are prizes of $75 to each of the five highest contestants and a prize of $35 to each of the succeeding five highest contestants. One of the five highest contestants will receive a $3000 scholarship. Those students interested in participat- ing should contact the department of mathematics before November 1. of MISS NANCY WAGNER Voting-Age Students Will Travel To Polls All students of Lebanon Valley Col- lege who are eligible to vote in the 1960 presidential elections will be given an op- portunity to do so. Those students whose hometown is more than fifty miles from the LVC cam- pus will be excused from classes one-half day for voting. This will allow for tra- vel to and from their homes. If the distance is too great for travel in this period of time, students may consult the dean of the college and make special ar- rangements. Two active, organizations are trying to win support for their respective candi- dates. They are "Youth for Nixon" and "College Students for Kennedy and John- son." In addition to these partisan activities, the Political Science Club is sponsoring a student poll in the near future. The poll will be conducted by Ronald Bell, a senior. Accounting Students Will Attend Deminar Students enrolled in Mr. Riley's cours- es in intermediate accounting and cor- porate finance will attend the Pennsyl- vania Tax Seminar to be held at Hotel Hershey on Thursday, October 20. The seminar is sponsored by the Har- risburg Chapter of the National Associ- ation of Accountants, and is designed to appeal to business men, accountants and attorneys. Speakers will be Robert Cusick and Richard Wagner of the Pennsylvania De- partment of Revenue; Louis DelDuca, Professor of Law, Dickinson Law School; and Irving Yaverbaum, CPA, chairman of the Pennsylvania Board of CPA Examiners. LVC Will Nominate 5 Danforth Fellows Lebanon Valley College is invited to nominate this year through Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, our liasion officer, a maximum of three men for Danforth Fellow of the Danforth Foundation of graduate fel- lowships. Appointment is given annually to ap- proximately 100 men preparing for col- lege teaching who, at the time of apply- ing, have had no graduate study. It is for one year, with expectation of annual re- newal through the years of graduate study, if the graduate record is distin- guished and the relationship proves mu- tually agreeable. Selection to the Danforth Foundation program is made on the basis of out- standing academic ability, personality congenial to the classroom and integrity and character, including serious inquiry within the Christian tradition. The applicant may be preparing to teach in any academic discipline com- mon to the undergraduate college. Men in natural, biological and social sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. The Danforth Fellow is free to use his fellow- ship at any accredited university in the United States. The limit on the annual maximum grant is $1,500 plus tuition and fees for the single man, and $2,000 plus tuition and fees for the married man with an additional stipend of $500 for each child. The nomination must be in the Foun- dation office by December 1, 1960. Miss Patricia Jones, an 18-year-old music major from York, Pennsylvania, was crowned College Day Queen at the half-time ceremonies at today's game. Her attendants are Miss Margaret Zimmerman, Camp Hill, and Miss Nancy Wagner, Lebanon, both of whom were also chosen by the L-Club election. The Queen and her attendants will reign over the annual College Day dance tonight, following the presentation of "Three For The Show, Volume II," a group of three plays presented in Engle Hall at 7:30 p.m. by the Wig and Buckle Club. This morning, the annual Tug of War was held over the Quittie between the sophomores and the freshmen.

Mr. Lanese was a member of the Monteux String Quartet and Conducting Class. L V C D A Y Q U E E N Miss Patricia Jones SC A Plans Organized Student Study Groups In an effort to fill what it considers to be a need and a desire for extracurricular intellectual concern on our campus, SCA is, through a steering committee, develop- ing small study groups consisting of in- terested students and faculty resource leaders. It is intended that these groups meet at regular intervals to study in depth various subjects of interest. Examples of topics are "Africa," "Southeast Asia," and "Theology and Culture." Within a few weeks, students will be asked to indicate their willingness to parti- cipate in these study groups, as well as Dr. W. C. H. Prentice, Dean of Swarthmore College and retiring president of Division 1 of the Amer- ican Psychological Association, will speak in Engle Hall, Tuesday, Octo- ber 18, at 8 p.m. Dr. Prentice has chosen as his topic "Cognitive Influences on Motivation." All interested students and faculty members are invited to attend. MISS MARGARET ZIMMERMAN College Trustee Board Adds Three Members Three men have joined the Lebanon Valley College Board of Trustees this fall. DeWitt M. Essick, '34, Millersville, was elected by the alumni. Essick is the assistant manager of training, education and personnel administration for the Armstrong Cork Company, Lancaster. Trustee-at-large Earnest D. Williams, Jr., Annville, is vice president of the Millard Lime and Stone Company and president of the Annville EUB Church Board of Trustees. The Rev. Thomas S. May, '34, pastor of the State Street EUB Church, Harris- burg, represents the East Pennsylvania Conference of the EUB Church on the Board. the topics they wish to explore. The committee is asking that the students consider this matter seriously. Any questions or suggestions are en- couraged and should be directed to Ron Bell, Chuck Arnett, and Larry Plymire. Service Organisation Directs Blood Bank A Blood Bank Club came into exist- ence at LVC shortly after Alpha Phi Omega officers cleared the idea with Mrs. William Tredick, R.N., of the col- lege infirmary, the deans of the college, and a Lebanon pathologist from the Good Samaritan Hospital. The club was established as a security precaution in case personal tragedy would befall someone affiliated with the college. Anyone connected with the college is automatically a member of the club and may benefit from its services. This in- cludes all regularly matriculated full-time students, faculty, administration, mainte- nance personnel, and the immediate fam- ilies of the above persons, except fami- lies of students. The club will be locally related to the Lebanon Good Samaritan Hospital. Since this hospital is a member of the American Association of Blood Banks' National Clearinghouse Program, mem- bers of the club can receive blood in any hospital or community blood bank in the United States that is a member of the Program. I A committee will be appointed by I APO to maintain the Bank and to direct the replenishing of the supply when nec- essary. All volunteer donors will have their blood typed; all students, faculty and college personnel are asked to cooperate with the APO committee in this effort. A roster will be posted in the Student Personnel Office for people who want to have their blood typed. Those who al- ready have a certified blood type card should notify any Alpha Phi Omega See "Blood Bank," page 3 PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, October 15, 1960 La Vie Collegienne Established 1925 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE, ANNVILLE, PENNA. 37th Year — No. 2 Saturday, October 15, 1960 Editors-in-Chief Peter H.

A Question Of Values Lebanon Valley College is presently split between two opposing factions, the first substantially larger than the second. One advocates a big name band for the 1961 Junior Prom. The other, a decided minority, is opposed to it for financial reasons. In addition, only two proponents of the minority view have had the cour- age to state their objections in the face of majority disapproval and ridicule. One thing the students of this campus, as mature and responsible individuals, must realize is that both sides have valid arguments. There will be no meeting of minds as long as one calls the other "status seekers." Neither is anything accom- plished by accusing anyone of lacking school spirit if he doesn't favor a big band. This paper will support, through its advertising and its columns, the 1961 Junior Prom. Once any organization or class is committed to a financial contract, the most important consideration of the whole school should be the success of the venture. However, for the good of future classes at Lebanon Valley, all those concerned with this Prom should force themselves to completely discard their personal desires and prejudices and evaluate the band decision realistically. THESIS: THE CASE FOR THE BAND Those who support this new experiment should be commended for their appar- ent willingness to work. The success of the Prom will depend in large part upon an effective advertising campaign. Also, those who attend will want something besides a name band to help them remember how special their Prom was. A lot of planning will be necessary to make the atmosphere just right. Lebanon Valley's anemic social life needs a booster shot of some kind. While the weekend exodus is due in part, as was mentioned at the last Faculty-Student Council meeting, to the outside employment of many students, there is no reason why those who do remain here should have to seek out-of-town entertainment so often. The actual reason behind the attempt to secure a name band is not to impress other colleges. Lebanon Valley now enjoys a very fine reputation in both the aca- demic and athletic fields, especially considering the phenomenal success of the 1960 football team, now leading in its division of the Middle Atlantic Conference. It is perfectly understandable and commendable that the students would like to see our social standards brought up on a par. ANTITHESIS: THE OPPOSITION VIEW The other side of the story must be much more impartially reviewed, since it would be hard to find a student at Valley who would not like to see a professional dance orchestra on campus. Therefore, the ability of the students to recognize the validity of these points will attest to their sense of responsibility. Lebanon Valley did not attain its present stature without considerable expense. Our fine faculty can not give its services gratis, and housing and feeding our campus population is no small endeavor. No student at LVC is paying the total cost of his education; nor could most of them do it if they had to. We have the largest program of financial aid, percentage- wise, of any college in Pennsylvania. 50.4 per cent of our students receive aid in one form or another. This is not the whole story. The bills at this school would rise alarmingly were it not for the generous contributions of friends, alumni and affiliated churches. Every student at Lebanon Valley owes a large debt of gratitude to a great many persons for the privilege of attending a fine college. Their generosity makes our education possible. The reader must now divorce himself completely from the campus scene, and place himself in the position of an alumnus who has received a request for a dona- tion to help finance any of the many necessary projects at LV. Why should anyone contribute to the education of college students who have $2800 of their own to spend on four hours of entertainment? SYNTHESIS La Vie supports the junior class and Faculty-Student Council in its name band project for this year, and wishes it the greatest success. It also urges a closer exami- nation of all factors and values before any future project of this nature is attempt- ed. Will next year's junior class be satisfied with something less than this year's Prom? Lebanon Valley is a college of approximately 650 students, each of whom could have attended a large university if they had desired a "collegiate" social life. Instead they are a relatively small group, and are receiving some of the finest educa- tional opportunities available, because the college places academic achievement at the top of its list. There is a college for every type of person. Which variety of reputa- tion does a school the most good, the academic or the social? Why will you be proud to say you attended Lebanon Valley? (PHR) Plan To Attend "Autumn Carousel" COLLEGE DAY DANCE Tonight 9-12 Couple: $2.50 Sponsored by the L-Club Letters to La Vie Prom Choice Defended To the Editors of La Vie: Just because a class wishes to do something new, something which has never been done before on campus, are they to be considered status seekers? If this is the case, then we would say that when Edison invented the light bulb and the Wright Brothers flew their first airplane, they were also status seekers. If every time people did something new and different they were considered status seekers, then we hope the world will al- ways be filled with this type of person. If people were always looked down upon for trying something new and were ostracized for "thinking big," where would we be today? Progress is a sign of life.. . May we ask what is wrong with hold- ing a place of esteem in the eyes of oth- er colleges? If we can rival them in the athletic and scholastic fields, why can't we rival them on the social field? The social life on this campus is among the poorest of any college in this area. Is it wrong to attempt to give it a shot in the arm? The two young ladies who wrote the letter in the last issue say they wish to do something to benefit the student body. Isn't bringing pleasure to the student body a benefit? Bringing a big name band on campus might provide more of a benefit than first meets the eye. If a class is willing to unite and work for a specific goal, this certainly benefits the campus. Or isn't school spirit a part of college life? If a student can feel proud of his school because he can say, "We too had a big name band," does not his also make for better school spirit? Or should going to class be the only feeling we have about LV? Why don't we ask the campus how it stands on this question? After all, as was stated, it is their money. . . We have just one more question to pose for the consideration of the two young ladies who oppose big name bands. Do you want the junior class to donate its money to this program or are you just referring to the amount which will be provided by the Faculty-Student Council? In the first place, a maximum of $2000 will be paid out for the band, and only half of that will be Faculty-Student Council money. This $1000 would not even be a beginning for any of the pro- grams the girls suggested. But if this amount would be used to make the student body more college con- scious, it could mean a beginning — a be- ginning of the end for the suitcase at LVC. RAY LICHTENWALTER, TEX VANDERBACH and DON WINTER Cooperation Sought in Faculty Survey To the Editors of La Vie: The presidential poll presently being conducted among the faculty of the col- lege will be rendered unacceptable unless more returns are received. To date, "Students for K and J" has received only twelve answers to its in- quiries. The purpose of the poll is to stimulate interest on the campus; there- fore, we would appreciate the faculty's cooperation on this project. Any faculty member who has not responded is urged to do so by the next La Vie deadline, October 24. Sincerely yours, COLLEGE STUDENTS FOR K AND J Figures Prom Costs To the Editors of La Vie: Just for the sake of curiosity, I decid- ed to figure out a tentative list of ex- penses for the 1961 junior prom. Dividing the $2800 cost of the band by 650 students and adding in the fol- lowing items, here is what it will cost every fellow who gets a date for this dance: $ 8.62 — Share of band cost per couple 4.00 — Ticket price per couple 7.50 — Minimum tuxedo rental 5.00 — Minimum corsage price 3-00 — Post-dance refreshments 1.00 — Minimum auto expenses A Suggestion In the wake of the major part of the initiation program, this editorial will set forth a description of the main things sought after during an introductory process of this kind, and some modifications of the present setup which may remedy some of this year's problems along this line. In the first place, a special temperament is required of those who are carrying on the initiation. They must be students who know from experience the value of the program; they must be of the opinion that temporary subordination of the fresh- men serves a valuable psychological purpose in conditioning the incoming class for college life. An attitude of receptiveness should be instilled in the new class. A freshman needs to realize that he is indeed a tenderfoot as he approaches the fund of informa- tion available to him at college. He must cope with new and unique ideas; he should prepare himself for the unexpected; he has to learn to think quickly and imagina- tively. This attitude will serve him well throughout college and will help him not only to find his way from Mt. Gretna to the campus at 4:00 a.m. but to find his way from Mt. Olympus to Capitol Hill in a history course. He will find his feelings simi- lar as he approaches a White Hat with questions on the L-Book or a prof with a pop quiz. A display of personality should manifest itself during the initiation period, both on the part of individual frosh and the class as a group. A revolt "to end it all" shows impertinence, but a constructive showing of spirit and ambition, an "imagin- ative obedience" to freshman rules, and a good-natured rebelliousness can set aside a class as something special. The White Hats, in the opinion of this editor, have taken giant steps toward a better system of introducing frosh to LVC. However, two modifications are sug- gested here, which may provide the finishing touches to the system begun by the White Hats. The Hats are possibly a transitional group between the old form of initiation and what will eventually be a still different organization . Sophomores should constitute the White Hats. This group, elected from each campus organization on the same plan by which this year's Hats were chosen, would serve as the committee for planning the initiation group. They would also be the members of the Tribunal. From time to time arrangement should be made for the active participation of all sophomores in the plans laid by the Hats. It seems clear that only a sophomore has the unique temperament, ignited by fresh memories of his own adjustment to the college world, to arouse in freshmen a healthy respect for the experience he is beginning. This year's group elicited no rebellion from the Class of '64. No freshman band announcing the enthusiasm of the class preceded or followed the Frolics, as in past years; no class cheers or songs evolved; conspiratory gatherings of frosh behind locked doors were few and scattered; the chief reaction was unimaginative obedience to the requests of the Hats. Investigation confirms that '64 is the only class now on campus to fail to exhibit an attitude of revolt. Was this year's program an overly-mitigated one, so that the freshmen actually had little to revolt against? Perhaps an all-sophomore committee could change all that for the Class of '65. The above suggestions could be incorporated in a revised White Hat Constitu- tion. La Vie welcomes student opinion on this topic.

Six million listeners of an internationally known radio broadcast wear it as an emblem in their lapels. But few people know the fascinating story behind the symbol of the cross. Centuries before Christ died, it was J^a Vie inquired by Connie Myers Is Lebanon Valley College justified in spending $2,800 for a big-name band for the Junior Prom? The Faculty-Student Council and the Junior Class have each agreed to pay $900 of the cost. Tickets for the spring event will cost $4.00 per couple. Is all this expense worthwhile? A re- cent letter to La Vie (Oct. 6, 1960) pointed out many other uses to be found for this money around the Lebanon Val- ley College campus. It also pointed out that such a band can be heard in Her- shey at less cost per couple. A brief survey of students' opinions highlights some features of the problem. Phil Bronson: "It's all right to try having a well-known band for one year, but it's too big an expense to have one every year." Shelvy Bixel: "I think it's a good idea to have a big-name band for the prom. It will bring some fame to our school." Kay Hoffer: "If the majority of the student body is in favor of having a big- name band and if the groups agree to work together in organizing the event, I think that we are justified in spending the money." Jim Winand: "Yes, I feel we should have a nationally-known band. It would bring a good name to our school. After all, lots of kids look to our school for social activities." $29.12— Total This does not take into account the fact that most girls who attend the prom will probably buy a new gown. Let's be serious! How many people can really afford this? Sincerely, FLAT BROKE a symbol widely known throughout the ancient world. The Egyptians called it "canob," after a T-shaped instrument used to measure the annual rise of the Nile on whose bounty the life of the nation depended. For other nations of the East, it was an "urani," and took the shape of two pieces of wood with handles. By rubbing the two sticks together, the an- cients kindled sacred fire. As early as 1225 B.C., Greek worship- pers of Bacchus offered that god cakes of flour with a figure of the cross im- printed on them. The swastika, or twist- ed cross, which became a symbol of ter- ror in the 20th Century, appears on the oldest medallions of the Buddhists and was a mystical good omen in many Hin- du sects. The cross was used as an instrument of national punishment in the time of Abraham. As a gallows, it was familiar to the Egyptians, Africans, Macedonians, Greeks and Romans. To various peoples it has meant a symbol of eternal life, productive power, or the life-giving qual- ities of the sun. For Christians around the world, the cross is a symbol of their faith. In their days of persecution, faithful believers used the cross as a secret pass-sign, later wore it on their foreheads as a means of recognition. Crucifixes came to be widely distributed by the Church as aids to devotion. The cross was a badge of a crusade in 1905, and became the emblem of the medieval military religious order of the Knights of Templars. In the New World, the Spaniards con- quered New Spain in the name of the cross. But they were astonished to find the holy emblem of their own faith al- ready the object of worship in the tem- See "Christian Symbol," page 4 La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, October 15, 1960 PAGE THREE Dutch Flier by Chip Burkhardt With the Dutchmen off to a flying start, fans are looking for big things from the boys in the remaining games. Here is how we have fared against these teams in the past. Wilkes. One of our more recent rivalries, the Wilkes series began in 1953. Valley has dominated the Colonels seven games to one, losing only in 1954 by a 19-0 score. The five LV victories since 1955 have included tallies of 41-6 and 39-6. Last year's final was 10-3 and this year Wilkes bowed 14-8. Drexel. This series dates back to 1933, and is tied at four games each, includ- ing this year's 40-8 romp. The 1959 Dutchmen squad shut out the Dragons by a score of 20-0. Upsala. LVC leads in this series 6-3, although last year's contest found us on the short end of an 8-0 score. The first game of the series was played in 1937, at which time Upsala won 3-0. Muhlenberg. One of Valley's oldest rivals, the Mules first met defeat at the hands of the Dutchmen in 1900, being shut out 36-0. Since then, however, the record credits them with 18 victories against LV's 14, with one 21-21 tie in 1921. Last year's conflict saw the Blue and White victorious, 12-7. Moravian. Lebanon Valley is far ahead in total victories over Moravian College, having won 14 and tied one of 20 contests held since 1902. Last year LV won on College Day by a score of 6-0. Dickinson. This series, the second oldest on this year's schedule, finds the Dutchmen trailing with a record of three wins, eight losses and one tie. In the five games between 1898 and 1912, Valley failed to score a point against the Red Devils, being shut out each time, until the Dutchmen managed to place three points on the board (against Dickinson's 53) in 1912. Since then, however, the Devils have won only one game, the 1946 tilt, by a score of 2-0. Last year's contest, the first since the one just mentioned, was won by Valley 15-6. Albright. The years since the first game in 1890 have produced some great battles, with the Lions leading in victories 19-17, with three ties on the record. Valley dominated the early years of the rivalry (1890-1928) with 10 wins, one loss (1913) and one tie (1927), but lost 11 and tied one of 13 games played through 1940. From 1941 to 1959, LV has taken 6 games to Albright's 6 and lost the 1959 contest by an 18-0 shut out. Washington and Jefferson. This year will mark the first gridiron meeting between the two teams. PMC. In 20 games dating back to 1933, Lebanon Valley holds a slight edge of one game. The record stands at 10-9, with one tie. In recent years the Dutchmen have not tasted victory against the Cadets. Last year's score was PMC 19, LVC 6. Valley Shuts Out Upsala, 6-0 Magnuson Sinks Vikings With 93 Yard Dash Lebanon Valley took its third consecutive game and the lead in the Northern Division of the Middle Atlantic Conference with a 6-0 win over Upsala in East Orange, New Jersey, October 7. Linebacker Vern Magnuson scored the only points of the game in the third quarter. Clearing right tackle, he was unchallenged after passing the 30 yard line, and covered 93 yards for the goal. The try for an extra point failed. The first half saw the two teams ex- Magnuson Chosen For ECAC Team change plays from one end of the field to the other. Valley made the most serious threat in the first half, driving to the Upsala 16, only to lose the ball due to a fumble. Each team came within field goal range once during the first half, but both attempts failed. Late in the third quarter the Vikings make their most serious drive, reaching the LV seven yard line. Valley's defense, which has allowed only one touchdown from the line of scrimmage this season, brought them up short. The last quarter saw neither team cross the goal line. Upsala was held scoreless, and attained only 213 yards on the ground and 18 in the air. The Vik- ings had 15 first downs to Valley's 10. BLOOD BANK Continued from page 1 member so that a record can be made of the types. The Blood Bank program will be ac- tive the year round, even during the sum- mer months. Spokesmen for APO wish to remind the campus to cultivate that "Christmas feeling — it's better to give than to re- ceive." Actuaries Will Give Exams In November The Society of Actuaries will give its General Mathematics Examination at Lebanon Valley College on Wednesday, November 16. This will consist of a three hour multiple-choice achievement exam based on material covered in differential and integrated calculus. Upon successful completion of the test, a candidate be- comes a full fellow of the Society. An actuary is the mathematician of the insurance business. He has succeeded in placing social welfare on a practical dollars-and-cents basis, thus helping to make available the benefits of life insur- ance, pensions, social security, and health insurance. The average annual sal- ary of men employed in actuarial divis- ions of insurance companies can be as high as $20,000. Detailed information and examples of questions (with answers) are contained in a pamphlet which is available in the mathematics department. Bob Kilmoyer, Don Murray, and Bob Daigneault can give first-hand information since they worked for insurance companies this summer. Social Science Group Plans For Semester Pi Gamma Mu, National Honor So- ciety of the social sciences, held its first meeting of the year at the home of Mr. Tom, adviser for the group. The purpose of the meeting was to outline this semester's program for the group. Some programs being planned are a talk by Mr. Carl Brandt of Har- risburg on the stock market; a discussion group on Sheila Taynton's trip to Russia; a showing by Mrs. Fields of her slides taken on her recent trip to South Ameri- ca; and a trip to New York City. The Society decided to continue its tu- toring program. Any student interested in receiving such aid may do so by con- tacting any member of the group. New members will be initiated into the Society at its next meeting. Bound NAA Bulletins Presented To Library A presentation of the most recent two bound volumes of the National Associa- tion of Accountants Bulletin was made to the Lebanon Valley library Septem- ber 26. Dr. Fields, college librarian, accepted these on behalf of the college from Mr. Orvis S. Kustanbauter, president of the Harrisburg Chapter of the National As- sociation of Accountants. The mathematics department received approximately 200 issues of mathematics and physics journals from Princeton Uni- versity. These journals have been placed in the mathematics seminar library. Dutchgirls Drop 2 To Shippensburg, E-town The Shippensburg hockey team defeat- ed Lebanon Valley on their own field by a score of 4-3, October 1. Joan Myers scored all three of Valley's tallies, while Sally Stought made two goals for Ship- pensburg. The other two goals were scored by Kathy Madel and Carol Guise. Lebanon Valley dropped their third game on October 6 to Elizabethtown College, 8-0. Linda Eshelman scored five of the eight goals. Two were made by Lucy Clemens and the eighth was ac- complished by Sally Wenger. Service Representative Will Speak In Chapel Miss Marsha Van Cleve, a Service Field Representative of the World Uni- versity, will speak in chapel Tuesday, October 18, 1960. Miss Van Cleve will be speaking as a part of the Campus Chest Chapel program. Miss Van Cleve is a 1960 graduate of the University of Southern Illinois where she was the recipient of the Outstanding Service Award by the president of the University. Donald Drumheller will represent the campus in this program as he takes on his duties as chairman of the Campus Chest. Geffen To Attend Pottstown Meeting Dr. Elizabeth Geffen, assistant profes- sor of history, is participating in the "Paideial" Conference at Pottstown to- day. The conference will be devoted to the study of "Interpretation of History." Dr. Geffen addressed the Central Penn- sylvania Conference at Harrisburg during its convention which took place October 10 and 11. She spoke concerning the question of what college teachers of American history would like high school teachers to teach in this area. Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the col- lege, also attended this conference as a leader of a discussion group on sound study habits on the secondary school level. Albright Chaplain Speaks In Chapel The Rev. William R. Marlow, chap- lain of Albright College, delivered an address at the Chapel service Tuesday, October 11. The Rev. Mr. Marlow spoke of his ex- periences with former Korean prisoners of war and the techniques of Commun- ist brainwashers in overseas detention camps. After serving as a missionary in India and as a pastor in the Central Pennsyl- vania Conference of the EUB Church, Mr. Marlow returned to his alma mater to fill the post of chairman. He also at- tended Yale Divinity School. Marine Selection Team To Make Campus Visit A Marine Corps Officer Selection Team will visit Lebanon Valley College on Monday, October 17, to interview students who are interested in becoming officers in the Marine Corps. Three programs will be described: one for freshmen, sophomores and juniors; one for seniors and recent graduates; the other for women who are juniors, sen- iors or recent college graduates. Interested students are invited to meet with the selection team in the College Snack Bar from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon. Eat At Hot Dog Frank's Vern Magnuson, Valley's halfback hero of the Upsala game, was named to the weekly All-East squad of the Eastern Col- lege Athletic Conference. Magnuson was selected by press box observers for his 93 yard run which scored the only points in the game. Also nominated to the squad were the following Pennsylvania college players: Mike Semcheski, Lehigh tackle; Art Hahn, Muhlenberg tackle; Dick Dundee, PMC guard; and John Kerr, Penn State halfback. The "Sophomores of the Week" rec- ognition went to fullbacks Ron Deveaux of Tufts and Joe Iacone of West Chester. National Poetry Contest Seeks Student Entries All college students are eligible to en- ter the Annual Poetry Anthology Com- petition sponsored by the National Po- etry Association now through Novem- ber 5. There are no limitations as to form or theme; however, because of space limita- tions, shorter works are preferred by the board of judges. No fees or charges will be required for acceptance or submission of verse. All work will be judged on merit alone. Each poem must be typed or printed on a separate sheet, and must bear the name and home address of the student, as well as the name of the college at- tended. Manuscripts should be sent to the offices of the National Poetry Asso- ciation, 3210 Selby Avenue, Los An- geles 34, California. In addition, teachers and librarians are invited to submit poetry manuscripts for consideration for possible inclusion in the annual National Teachers Anthology. The closing date for submission is Janu- ary 1. The rules stated above apply also to this contest. Valley AAUP Hosts Delegates At Dinner The Lebanon Valley College Chapter of the American Association of Univer- sity Professors was host to members of other AAUP chapters in the area at a dinner in the college dining hall Friday evening, October 7. The guest speaker was Miss Peggy Heim, a staff associate in the national office of AAUP.

McKlveen Represents College At Meetings Two conferences concerning the teach- ing profession are scheduled for Friday, October 21, at state colleges. Dr. Gil- bert McKlveen, head of the division of teacher education, supervisor of second- ary student teaching, and professor in au- dio-visual aids, will attend these gather- ings. The Pennsylvania Association for Stu- dent Teaching will have its meeting at Kutztown State College. This confer- ence will deal with problems of student teaching on the secondary level. At West Chester State College, a meeting to consider a professional film library exchange program will take place. Bailey Films, Inc., Hollywood, Califor- nia, wishes to find out the number of colleges in this area which would be will- ing to pool resources to develop an ex- change of this kind. Bankers Invite Tom To Teach Economics Dr. C. F. Joseph Tom, professor of economics at Lebanon Valley, has been invited by the Lebanon County Chapter of the American Institute of Banking, American Banking Association, to serve as instructor in a course in economics during the current year. Mr. Tom previously instructed courses in Money and Banking and Business Ad- ministration for both the Lebanon Coun- ty Chapter and the Dauphin County Chapter.

CHRISTIAN SYMBOL Continued from page 2 pies of the Aztecs. Colossal stone monu- ments throughout Mexico attest to an India civilization which adored crosses similar in design to the Greek, Latin and Maltese forms. The cross of Lorraine, which Joan of Arc wore into battle, became General Charles deGaulle's symbol in leading the French resistance movement during World War II. A Swiss welfare agency which adopted as its emblem a red cross on a white field, reversing the color scheme in the Swiss flag, in 1864 organ- ized a conference to help the sick and wounded soldiers of the world. 16 na- tions attended and established the inter- national Red Cross. A plain gold cross, worn in the lapel and given free to those who wish it, is the emblem adopted by the largest radio mission in the world, The Lutheran Hour. Kinds of Crosses The simple Latin cross, with an up- right and single shorter transom, is the commonest. With two transoms it is call- ed a patriarchal cross; with three, a papal cross. A cross widely used by Slavs and others of Eastern rites has two transoms and a slanting crosspiece below. The Greek cross has equal arms. St. Andrew's cross is like an X; the Celtic, or Iona, cross bears a circle, the center of which is the crossing. The Mal- tese cross and the swastika are still more elaborate. An example of artistic effort spent on crosses is seen in the monumental ones of market, town, and wayside in Europe and in cemeteries. Some of the finest art products of the Anglo-Saxons were stone crosses. Legends of the Cross The rich history of the cross is shroud- ed in legend and superstition. A crucifix was said to have shed blood in 1512, during an Easter Day battle between the French and Spanish. A statue of Christ on the cross reportedly performed heal- ing wonders during the Plague of Ma- laga in 1649. Legend also has it that when St. Francis of Assisi was praying, a voice from the crucifix told him, "Re- pair my house." He interpreted "house" to mean his own spiritual life, and hence- forth renounced his worldly goods and took up orders. And the old wives' tale still persists in some quarters that the gypsies are accursed because one of them, a way-faring metalsmith, made the nails that were used at the Crucifixion! "That horn-blower behind me got my goat . , .** Even good drivers can be forced, into accidents! A hill-climbing truck ahead and a parade of honkers behind can try your patience. A tailgater with blazing lights can make you boil. But don't let them push you into a rash move. Traffic accidents killed 37,000 people last year. Who knows how many died because some good driver let another pressure him into taking a foolish chance? Don't let anger force you to risk lives— yours or others!

The meaning of these words is prob- ably unknown to most Lebanon Valley College students, even to those most pro- ficient in Greek, German, French, or Russian courses. These words mean simply "How are you feeling?" in Lat- vian, the native tongue of freshman music major, Arija Bergman. Arija knows her native language much better than she knows her native country. The Bergman's left Latvia when Arija was three years old to enter a displaced persons' camp in Germany. From a list of free countries provided by the Ger- man government, Arija's family chose America to be their new home. In 1950 the Bergmans reached this country. All were unable to speak Eng- lish. Arija quickly began learning the new language in North Carolina schools. Her family had settled in this southern state near their sponsor. However, in 1951 they came to Lebanon, Pennsyl- vania, where job opportunities were bet- ter. Arija is now eighteen years old and plans to take her test for United States citizenship soon. She is very much American already, but she is an American with a good background in Latvian lan- guage and history. The Bergmans some- times celebrate November 18, Latvian In- dependence Day, with a small party. They speak Latvian regularly at home. The Latvian language, Arija explains, is almost a language by itself. A few of its words correspond to German. Its alphabet is written like ours but with the letters "q" and "y" omitted. This simi- larity to English is not an assurance that we could learn to speak Latvian quickly. Appearances are deceiving, for Latvians do not pronounce the letters as we do. If one wishes to impress friends with one's Latvian linguistic ability, why not begin one's next letter with "Ka tev labe klajas?" Avoid trying to ask this ques- tion orally, however, before seeing Arija for pronunciation lessons. The Way I See It (The following feature is reprinted from the Tan and Cardinal, Otterbein College, Westerville, Ohio. The author is Al Gress.) Never let it be said that yours truly has not been concerned with the cause of furthering education. Here are a few suggestions on how freshmen can be- come socially educated in the ways of the upperclassmen. 1. Learn the names of class leaders, WELCOME Parents and Friends From the social and service Organizations of LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE Fve Got a Problem Eight Solve Temple Teaser; Netv Puzzle Contains Fallacy Seven students and one faculty member submitted correct solutions to last issue's problem, the Gods of the Temple puzzle. The successful entrants were: Jim Corbett, Joseph Fox, David Grove, Carl Rife, Wayne Selcher, George Smith, Paul Young and Dr. Tom. The first god called the center god the God of Truth, and the center one called himself the God of Diplomacy. Therefore neither can be Truth, leaving that title for the god on the right. That means the statement of the last god is true; it said that the center statue was the God of Falsehood. That leaves only the first statue, which is, by elimination, the God of Diplomacy. This week's puzzler is of a different Court Lady huc\ On LV Tug Day Members of the Class of '64 may be interested to know how they stand in re- gard to the six classes before them who participated in the fray at the Quittie. The classes of '59 and '61 were win- ners of the Tug both as freshmen and as sophomores, with the frosh '59ers ac- complishing this with the odds against them on the banks of the stream. Be- cause of a flu epidemic during their freshman year, '61 passed up the cold Quittie waters and enjoyed their victory in the middle of campus. This means that '60 and '58 lost both of their Tugs. The present juniors surrendered to '61 two years ago, but defeated the Class of 1963 in the memorable pull of last Oc- tober. sort, but can be just as frustrating. Where is the fallacy in this story? Seven wanderers all converged upon a simple hotel in a small western town one night and each demanded private lodging. However, the establishment con- tained only six rooms. The proprietor placed one man in room No. 1 and asked another man to wait there temporarily. He then put the third man in room No. 2, the fourth man in room No. 3, the fifth man in No. 4 and the sixth man in No. 5. Then, returning to room No. 1, he took the seventh man and put him in No. 6. Thus each man had his own room and everyone was happy. Solutions may be placed in the La Vie mailbox in the Student Personnel Office.

Study at least one hour a day in the Snack Bar. 3 Learn to look bored in chapel no matter how interesting the program. 4. Carry a pack of cigarettes in your shirt pocket at all times. 5. Become an authority on the Greek alphabet so that when strange fraternity letters seen, they can be spouted off to the amazement of others. 6. Put in an appearance at the library at least three times an evening. 7. Watch Maverick on Sundays at the Lounge. 8. Walk in groups of four abreast on sidewalks forcing others to the street. 9.

Student From Venezuela Attends Lebanon Valley Lee Lapioli comes to LVC from a community with the fascinating name of Valencia — Valencia, Venezuela. The very name of his home town sug- gests the aura of a romantic paradise. The enchantment dissolves, however, when dictatorship invades the scene. Venezuelans saw their happiness marred and their money drained by a dictator during the years between 1948 and 1958, when Lee graduated from high school. He moved to the United States one year ago. Before going on to college, he attended secondary school here also, and found the schedule of U. S. classes an interesting one. There were no siestas from eleven to two every day. Since his uncle resides in Annville, Lee chose Lebanon Valley as the insti- tution to prepare him for the career he anticipates in electronics, and entered the freshman class at the beginning of the second semester in 1960. Lee is a fellow of varied interests. He enjoys anything from television to danc- ing, in the tradition of all U. S. college students. Future May Combine Two Cultures A question mark punctuates his plans for the future. He may decide to return to Venezuela where his parents and sister are living. He may like to stay in the States where his brother, too, is attending school. Whatever his future may be, he considers himself fortunate in his opportunity to observe at close hand the elements of two rich national patterns of life. Lee is LV's successful testimony that one can navigate the cultural stream from Valencia to Valley — with or with- out siesta! Libertas per Vertitatem Collegi lenne Re-elect H.S.T. 37th Year — No. 3 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pa. Thursday, October 27, 1960 Recognized MusiciansTo Conduct Clinic For Students And Directors A band clinic for students and band masters will take place on the Lebanon Valley campus in Engle Hall Friday, November 25. The clinicians who have been engaged for this event are among the best-known musicians in their respective fields. Harold Freeman, who formerly played under Toscanini, will conduct a clarinet clinic. The former first flutist of the Voice of Firestone Orchestra, Frederick Wil- kins, will lead a flute conference. A horn clinic will be conducted by Philip Farkas, the first hornist of the Chicago Symphony. The first American to win a first prize in saxophone at the Paris Conservatory of Music will also be among these clin- icians. During the discussion periods the stu- dents of music attending the sessions learn speciel techniques such as rehearsal and sight reading skills and are given class instruction on their respective in- struments. New Collegiate Slick To Make The Scene; Seeks Contributors The first bi-monthly issue of Collage magazine has gone on sale at bookstores and news stands at many campuses. The magazine was started by David Preiss, formerly of the University of Wisconsin and staff of Playboy magazine, and is subtitled "Entertainment and Enlighten- ment for College Eggheads." Material in the first issue includes a guest editorial by Dr. Robert M. Hut- chins, an article measuring the educa- tional benefits and drawbacks of the Uni- versity of Chicago, a study of the graphic art of woodcutting with a reproduction of a woodcut by student artist Gopal G. Mitra of the U. of Minnesota, and a 16- page insert devoted to Collage's new car- toonist discovery, Clayton D. Powers. Powers has since received offers from Harper's and Esquire for his captionless cartoons. There are also reviews, short stories, bridge and chess columns and non-fiction departments the magazine calls "academ- ica," "aesthetica," "athletica," "poetica" and "CCC Camp." The last is a collec- tion of new items and features of special interest or importance to college stu- dents, and these are compiled from items in the collegiate press and from material submitted by College Campus Corre- spondents, students on various campuses across the nation who report to Collage and are listed on the staff page of the 50c slick-paper magazine. Collage has also announced plans for a nation-wide student survey and a col- lege radio program which will be avail- able free to college stations on tape they provide. The Collage radio show will feature weekly half-hour programs of folk, jazz and classical music with com- ments and short interviews led by Col- lage emcees Al Lerman and Dick Ham- let. The staff has already begun the stu- dent survey by having correspondent ap- plicants answer such questions as "How could your college better fulfill the pur- poses of higher education?" A large-scale, nation-wide student sur- vey will be made during the month of November by College Campus Corre- spondents. Individual students will be polled and asked to list their preferences in music, art and literature, as well as fashions and other commodities. The study will be undertaken by CCC's for dual purposes of determining editorial and advertising facts for Collage. Results of this research will be made available to interested student, government and business organizations as well. See "Collegiate Slick," page 3 Juniors Vote For Honored Students The junior class has announced the selection of students to appear on the honor pages of the 1962 Quittapahilla. Mr. and Miss LVC, chosen on the basis of personality, service and leader- ship, are George Hiltner, president of the class, and Olivia Gluyas. Harry Yost and Carol Smith were elected Mr. and Miss Quittie, the quali- fications being personal appearance, charm and courtesy. The Quittie Court includes Brenda Brown, Carol Felty, Annette Kurr, Sandy Stetler and Jeanne Vowler. The title of Mr. and Miss Athlete, selected on the basis of all-around ability and participation in the LVC sports program, are Hi Fitzgerald and Joanne Freed. The list of Ten Outstanding Students includes those juniors chosen by their classmates for qualities of service, schol- arship, leadership, character and person- ality: John Adams, Don Bacastow, Sylvia Bucher, Don Drumheller, Jean Kauff- man, Anita Pingle, Carl Rife, Marylin Shaver, Robert Stull and Pat Wise. LVC Clarinet Choir Accepts Concert Bid The LVC clarinet choir, under the direction of Mr. Frank Stachow, has been invited to present a concert, Janu- ary 15, in Washington, D. C, for the National Asrociation of College Wind and Percussion Instructors. This choir is one of the few of its kind in the United States; it is composed of an E flat soprano, a BB flat contra- bass, B flat sopranos, A flat altos, and B flat bass clarinets. A string quartet will also be included in the concert. PianistsToPerform Concertos In Engle The Lebanon Valley department of music will present a Concerto Recital, performed by the piano students of Mr. William Fairlamb, November 8, at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. Students participating will be: Joan Mumper, Annette Kurr, Janet Taylor, Doris Kohl, Bonnie Fix and Dennis Swei- gart. Each will perform the solo part to a concerto, accompanied by one of the other students playing the second pi- ano part. The program includes works by Mo- zart, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. Pol Sci Club Stages Bi-partisan Discussion The Political Science Club will spon- sor a bi-partisan discussion on Monday, October 31, 8:30 p.m. in the Audio- Vis- ual Aids Room of the library. Thomas Ehrgood, Republican State Senator, and James Krause, Lebanon County Democratic Chairman, will pre- sent the basic principles of their respective parties in an effort to determine the dif- ferences between them. Students will be permitted to ask questions. This is another endeavor by the Polit- ical Science Club to stir political inter- est on campus; all are invited to attend. DR. NORMAN W. PAULLIN Freshmen Organize To Choose Leaders The nominees for the offices of the Class of 1964 met Sunday evening, Octo- ber 23, in Mary Green Lounge. Barry Danfelt, senior adviser to the class, presided. The group chose Ken Whisler chairman and Hannah Pisle, act- ing secretary. The purpose of the meet- ing was to discuss and organize the cam- paigning and voting for the freshman class officers. Voting took place today between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the first floor of the Administration Building. Bill Altland headed a committee to direct the ballot- ing. A rally to acquaint the freshmen with their candidates was held in the Keister Hall following chapel. Presidential nomi- nees are Bill Altland, Robert Rhine, and Ken Whisler. Pi Gamma Mu Takes Two Into Membership Don Bacastow and Stan Kaczorowski were initial sd into Pi Gamma Mu at the organization's last meeting. To be eligible for this honor, a stu- dent must appear in the upper 35 per cent of his class and must maintain an aver- age of 85 per cent in these subjects: his- tory, sociology, political science and eco- nomics. At the meeting, Dr. and Mrs. Fields showed slides of their recent trip to Gua- temala. Duiing the discussion which fol- lowed, Mrs. Fields commented that she encountered nothing but friendliness in the Latin Americaa country, and that their visit was made extremely pleasant by the courtesy accorded her and her husband. Pol Sci Club Plans Presidential Election The Political Science Club will direct a mock national election for all stu- dents, faculty and college personnel, Thursday, November 3, in the gymnas- ium. A special committee headed by Ron- ald Bell was named to formulate plans for the balloting, which will take place between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The use of a voting machine is un- der consideration. There is no advance registration for the voting. Publicity for the event is being han- dled by the Youth For Nixon Club and Students for Kennedy and Johnson. The Political Science Club urges a large turn- out for the election. Any questions may be directed to a Pol Sci Club member. Evangelist Paullin To Give Religion And Life Lecture Dr. Noman W. Paullin, D.D., faculty member of the Eastern Baptist Theologi- cal Seminary, will present the fall Religion and Life lecture in chapel, Tuesday, November 1. Faculty Carries Over Classroom Interests To Extra-Curriculars Dr. Martin Foss will lead a conversa- tion in the Snack Bar of Carnegie Lounge on November 17 at 4:00 p.m. The subject is "Existentialism and the College Student." Mrs. Geraldine Kurtz and Dr. Francis H. Wilson served as consultants at the York Area Inservice Institute, October 17 and 18. Mrs. Kurtz participated in the sectional meeting on elementary school music. Dr. Wilson shared in discussions on the teaching of the biological sciences at the secondary school level. Mr. C. F. Joseph Tom and his wife have been reappointed as Danforth Asso- ciates for the third consecutive year. The appointments of Danforth Associates are awarded to those who are teachers with major classroom responsibilities seeking to improve their academic competence and who are deeply concerned for stu- dent welfare and campus religious life. The purposes of the program are to strengthen the informal faculty-student relationship and to promote faculty con- versations in which faculty members may enjoy frank and critical discussion of some of the major issues in higher edu- cation. Mr. Ralph S. Shay attended the twen- ty-ninth annual meeting of the Pennsyl- vania Historical Association on the cam- pus of Bucknell University, Saturday, October 15. Dr. Piel, Dr. Lockwood, Mr. Tom, Mr. Fairlamb and Dean Ehrhart will attend the 10th Annual Conference of the De- partment of Higher Education on Octo- ber 27 to 29. The theme will be "Creat- ing a Favorable Climate for Learning." Included in the schedule are lectures, group meetings and a banquet with vari- ous college personnel speaking. The con- ference is to be held at the Penn Harris Hotel in Harrisburg. Dr. Barnard H. Bissinger was re-elect- ed section chairman of the National Ma- thematics Contest for Lebanon, Dauphin and Berks counties. This is the third consecutive year that he has held this position. The contest is open to any secondary school in the United States. The highest score in each school wins a gold pin with additional prizes of bronze and silver cups on wider regional score winning. College Emphasizes Christian Vocations Lebanon Valley College observed Christian Vocations Week, October 24- 26, in cooperation with the denomination headquarters of the Evangelical United Brethren Church. A visiting team from Dayton, Ohio, was on campus to pro- mote the theme of the week. The Rev. Warren J. Hartman, D.D., director of EUB youth work, and Miss Helen Moon, director of EUB children's work and a member of the Board of Missions, were available for personal in- terviews. The Rev. Dr. Hartman spoke in the October 25 chapel service and was pres- ent with Miss Moon at an informal dis- cussion in Carnegie Lounge Tuesday af- ternoon. George Plitnik, Judy Snowberger, Her- man Myer, Donald Drumheller, Elaine Walter, and Sam Shubrooks coordinat- ed the events of this year's Church Vo- cations Week. Paullin is a native of Bridgeton, New Jersey, and has served Baptist churches in the New Jersey and Pennslyvania areas. He now serves as professor of evangelism and pastoral ministry at the Seminary where he received both college and seminary training. He was honored in 1941 by the Amer- ican Theological Seminary, which be- stowed upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity. The same honor was conferred upon him by Temple Univer- sity in 1953. Dr. Paullin has been a featured speaker at a number of America's reli- gious crusades in such places as the American Baptist Convent'on, the Ocean Grove Auditorium, and the Ocean City Tabernacle. He has served in various offices of his own denomination as well as in the interdenominational field. Chemistry Club To Visit Paper Plant The Chemistry Club of Lebanon Val- ley is planning a field trip to P. H. Glat- felter Paper Company in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, November 4. This trip is a segment of the organi- zation's activities designed to acquaint the members with practical work in the industries involving chemistry. On a pre- vious trip, October 14, the club toured the Millard Limestone plant west of Annville. At their next meeting, November 13, the Chem. Club will welcome Dr. John T. Ouderkirk, of the Ciba Chemical Com- pany of Toms River, New Jersey. Dr. Ouderkirk will speak on the relationship of chemistry to industrial practice. Teacher Examinations Offered By Princeton The National Teacher Examinations, prepared and administered annually by the Educational Testing Service, will be given at 160 testing centers throughout the United States on Saturday, February 11, 1961. At the one-day testing session a can- didate may take the Common Examina- tions, which includes a test in profession- al information, general culture, English expression, and non-verbal reasoning; also one or two of thirteen Optional Ex- aminations designed to demonstrate mas- tery of subject matter to be taught. The college which a candidate is at- tending, or the school system in which he is seeking employment, will advise him whether he should take the National Teacher Examinations and which of the Optional Examinations to select. A Bulletin of Information (in which an application is inserted) describing registration procedures may be obtained from college officials, school superinten- dents, or directly from the National Teacher Examiantions, Educational Test- ng Service, 20 Nassau Street, Princeton, New Jersey. Completed applications, accompanied by proper examination fees, will be accepted by the ETS office dur- ing November and December, and early in January as long as they are received before January 13, 1961.

Three years ago, the senior class came to this campus as green freshmen. Remember those first few nights in the dorm, getting to know each other, express- ing your own ideas about the whys and wherefores of college life? Remember Jay Catlin and Doug Ross? They were sophomores then. Who can forget them, barking orders as the frosh duckwalked their way from the library to the old dining hall every day at noon, quacking as they went. Remember the 3:00 a.m. hike? You weren't dropped out three or four miles. Everyone went at least as far as Indiantown Gap, and a few unlucky guys were left on the other side of Mt. Gretna. You knew what it meant to be initiated. Remember the day you were told to wear your clothes backwards as punish- ment for being "too cocky?" So you wore them backwards and inside out too, and plastered "Go '61" signs all over yourselves and the campus. You had a lit- tle spirit and imagination. You weren't afraid of the Senate or anyone else, although you knew the meaning of the word "respect." And you didn't revolt against initiation by simply refusing to cooperate. When the sophs told you to do something, you used your heads and improved on it, and showed the whole school that your class had real individuality. Remember those pep rallies? It took nearly five minutes for you to quiet down before the coach could speak; you weren't afraid to cheer your lungs out. Valley was your school, and you weren't ashamed to tell the world about it. Remember Bill Nixon and the rest of the frosh band? You didn't have to be organized by the college band drum major. Remember the nights you set up plan- ning your parades? You even wrote new marches to play — and you practiced un- til you could play them in tune. Remember when you were sophomores? Will you ever forget Terry DeWald's snare drum and the rest of the '62 band waking you out of a sound sleep by play- ing right outside your door at 6:00 a.m.? They didn't let anyone scare them away from their march through Kreider Hall. '62 had spirit too. You have a lot to remember, '61 — the rallies, the pre-dawn hikes, even the duckwalking. But most of all, you can look back with pride to the time when your class learned the real reason for an initiation. In a few short months, you grew from high school boys into college men. (PHR) La Vie Inquires Students Discuss Election Debates The television rooms around Lebanon Valley College were hardly as crowded during the World Series as they were during the first televised debate between candidates for President of the United States John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon. The size of the crowds dwindled considerably after the novelty of the first debate, but sub- stantial numbers of students still turned out to watch the three remaining ver- bal disputes. Whether over or under voting age, most students have Myers formed some opinion on the effective- ness of candidates in presenting their stands. Did the debates change many opinions toward the candidates? Were they a worthwhile part of the campaign? Sue Kelly: "I do think they were worthwhile because the people could at the same time hear both condidates. Peo- ple were not swayed by partisan news- papers. It made the campaign a little more objective. The televised debates familiarized me with some of the can- didates' ideas which I had not had time to read about." Ira Bechtel: "Personally, I don't think the debates influenced my feelings. They were worthwhile, however, since they displayed the candidates' views to a large audience." Letitia Crispen: "I'm still for the same candidate. The debates are a good idea but issues should be limited to avoid de- trimental discussions such as the Que- moy-Matsu issue." Hakim Lys: "I think the debates did influence many people's thinking very much. They were worthwhile because they enabled one to hear the candidates' own point of view." Kay Steiner: "I think the debates were worthwhile even though they accomplish- ed nothing drastic. It made many peo- ple more aware of what was going on. Probably the debates won't influence the election too much, though. At least they helped show that free speech is still in vogue in America." Dave Pierce: "Watching the debates made me decide that I didn't care too much for either candidate. They didn't handle themselves as Presidental can- didates should." Dick Rhine: "Many points that would not have been brought out in the news- papers were brought out in the debates. It would be a good idea to continue them because they get more people interested in the campaign. My opinion of the can- didates was not changed by watching them on television." BEAT DICKINSON Letters to La Vie Refutes Prom Figures Dear Flat Broke: Since you are obviously not an eco- nomics major, I felt you might like to have an actual price list for the junior prom. Even though I am not entirely sold on the prom idea myself, I think your mathematics could use some cor- rection. This is a list of the costs for the aver- age fellow who is going, with his date, to the junior prom. $ 4.00 — ticket price per couple 7.50 — average tuxedo rental 3.12 — average corsage price (tax in- cluded) 4.00 — post-dance refreshments and auto expenses $18.12— total As you can see, these prices are the average. They may vary greatly accord- ing to the limitation of an individual's finances. I left out the $8.62 in "Flat Broke's" list because the student does not have to spend this. It comes from the combined resources of the junior class and the Faculty-Student Council. In addition, a corsage may be purchased for as little as $2.60, plus tax. I would like to point out that the ac- tual cost to the student has increased only $.25, the amount the ticket price has been raised. Sincerely WALT KRUGER (In defense of the previous letter writ- er, his inclusion of the $8.62 figure was based on the fact that the resources of the junior class and the Faculty-Student Council are originally student money, coming from dues, the activities fee, etc. —Ed.) The Freshman Doth Protest To the Editors of La Vie: The editorial in the October 15 edi- tion, "A Suggestion," struck me as being one of the most unconvincing pieces of editorial writing I have yet seen. I was unable to get any notion of the real cause for all-sophomore White Hat groups. In the first paragraph the editorialist states that she will "set forth a descrip- tion of the main things sought after dur- ing an introductory process of this kind, and some modifications of the present setup which may remedy some of this year's problems along this line." Then she sets forth a group of un- usually vague generalizations, such as an "attitude of receptiveness ..." and a "dis- play of personality." A class does not have an independent personality of its own; it reflects the opinions and person- alities of its leaders and surroundings. I agree that the freshman must "pre- pare himself for the unexpected; . . . learn to think quickly and imaginatively." Quick and imaginative thinking are gen- erally of little use while participating in enforced calisthenics, and are not likely to be developed by such activities. . . Miss Kauffman complains of a lack of rebellion. Against whom can we rebel? If we revolt against the White Hats, the Senate will get us. If we rebel against the Senate, the Administration will get us.. . I understand that the class of 1963 re- volted. What did it get them? It got them an end to frosh frolics as well as much of their prestige as a class, to say nothing of killing their chances to act as initiators for '64. I agree that the White Hat program was not tough enough to cause a desper- ate rebellion, but such a rebellion, in view of last year's situation, would prob- ably have ended freshman initiations at this institution for good. I say that the attitude of '64 has been a mature re- sponse to an inevitable stimulus. '64 has been confronted with such a maze of laws, regulations and penalties that it is often difficult to tell what the right thing to do in a given situation may be. For instance, the freshman band was shooed away from Kreider Hall on Un- derclassmen's Day by one of the Kreider Hall counsellors, on the flimsy excuse that the football players had been order- ed to sleep. . .

Each year this select group of voices travels to such cities as Baltimore and Philadelphia to present their concerts. However, these programs are confined to churches and similar gathering places, limited in their acoustical properties and seating space. Because of the talent of the Choir's members and the skill of its director, Dr. Thurmond, the tour is always deeply appreciated by the host churches, and the name of Lebanon Valley spreads a little further. Nevertheless, it is unfortunate that during the tour, no concerts are presented at any recognized auditoriums or halls in any of the large cities visited. The long hours of practice, while by no means wasted, are stifled by the limitations of the schedule. The choir from a college not too far from LVC will present a Town Hall concert in New York this year. The music department at the institution in question does not compare with ours, yet they will gain an immeasurable sense of accom- plishment as well as prestige from their appearance. It would be feasible for Lebanon Valley to arrange a similar New York pro- gram at least once in every four years. There is no reason why the name of this college should not be carried to the recognized concert halls of America. We are fortunate to possess a fine music faculty and to attract students of the highest calibre to the conserv. If our reputation is to grow, our talents must be heard. (PHR) Ten 'Foot 'Radius World From the BULLETIN, Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, Kansas: Not too long ago, the juke boxes across America were telling the heartrending story of a teen-aged lad who said he didn't know much about history, geography, or trigonometry, but that he did know one thing: that he loved his girl, and if she would only love him too, "what a wonderful world it would be." Unfortunately, there are too many Americans who show this sort of thinking, or lack of thinking. In an age of jet aircraft, guided missiles, and world-wide com- munication, many of us Americans still consider the limits of our world as ten feet in any direction from where we happen to be at the moment. When we're in high school, we don't read the newspapers because we don't want to be "different." When we get to college, we don't pay any attention to the rest of the world because we're too busy trying to get into the "sharpest" Greek organization, or slaving to buy a new car or to dress according to Seventeen Magazine. After graduation from college, we've got to get into the "best" clubs and buy a home in Country Club Heights. It is very nice when our world is so limited, because then we don't think we will be bothered by such things as hydrogen bombs that could turn the world into a pile of dust, or the spread of Communism which, if not checked, could engulf the world in a new Dark Age. Hydrogen bombs won't spare Country Club Heights any more than Main Street, and members of the "sharpest" fraternity or sorority won't be any safer than members of other Greek organizations or Independents. Nobody's little ten-foot-radius world is safe under present conditions. And it won't be safe until everyone starts thinking about something other than himself long enough to start changing the conditions. (ACP) Warning: Sharp Curves Ahead As mid-semesters roll around, the pen writes heavily in the roll book and the shadow of the bell-shaped curve is cast upon the college once again. The importance of this system is well-known to every student and professor affected by it. It has become as vital to education as testing itself. This editorial discusses briefly the curve system as a useful measuring tool, and further, as a powerful mechanism which has claimed servile devotion from students and teachers in high schools and colleges throughout the nation. As an instrument for measuring the range of scores, the mean score, and the resulting grade distribution, the curve protects students from loss when teacher- student misunderstandings of the wording of questions occurs. A too-difficult test or an especially easy one is redeemed by the curve, creating more lenient standards of grading for the former and stiffer ones for the latter. All of this is justice for the student. These advantages of the system make it indispensable in many cases. The curve is also a great equalizer, obliging a class roll book to indicate a majority of C's, even if a highly intelligent group of A and B students would com- pose the class. Even there, some would fail. In a college such as LVC where many classes are small, the question arises: does the theory of regression to the mean work on such a small scale? Are students forced to mediocrity by a system which fits individuals to a mathematical scale rather than one which assigns a certain percentage of achievement? There is a psychological effect which has developed because of the extensive use of the curve. Once the students realize its implications, the impulse to group dis- cussion and exchange of information in preparing for a test is quickly repressed. Each realizes that his success in the exam depends upon how much (and preferably how little) the other fellow knows. To contribute to another's understanding may contribute to the development of a "curve-breaker." If, however, knowledge is hoarded, the student himself may win the A. We are competing against persons rather than seeking a standard of excellence. Is the widespread use of the curve worthy of our devotion, or should it be lim- ited to classes such as LS. 20 and LS. 30 where a large number of students are involved and a true average is more likely to take form? Or should it be reserved for national exams such as College Boards and National Merit Scholarship tests? Would it have more validity there? Clearly, the bell-shaped curve has its place. Perhaps we should address ourselves to the matter of putting it there. (JMK) Plan To Attend THE INTER-SOCIETY FRAMMIS Tomorrow Night College Lounge 8-12 La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 27, 1960 PAGE THREE Dickinson Anticipates Strong LV Running And Passing Dickinson, October 27 — Coach Don Seibert is working on two tough problems this week as he points his faltering Dickinson College eleven toward Saturday's game here with once-defeated Lebanon Valley. The tougher of the two problems, he admits, is finding a defense that can withstand the running of Lebanon Valley's two fine halfbacks, Les Holstein and Vera Magnuson, who are playing their fourth year of varsity ball. Magnuson, whose 83-yard kickoff return for a touchdown sparked the Dutch- men to their 22-16 victory over Moravian last week, and his teammate are the rushing leaders of the Northern College division of the Middle Atlantic Conference. Coach Seibert's other worry is pass defense. Dickinson's inability to check the enemy in the air has figured in a big way in all three of its defeats to date. Lebanon Valley has a promising freshman quarterback in Wes MacMillan, a Shippensburg native who played for Big Spring High. The coming game will be his first performance this season so close to home, which may act as an extra incentive for a fine performance. "Our defense against running plays last week was much better than the one- sided score indicates," said the Dickinson coach. "It's pass defense that really worries me." Dickinson, which lost to LV by a 15-6 score last season, expects an improved running game with the recovery of halfbacks Bob Harlowe and Jack Thomas, absent from recent games due to illness. Dickinson has lost Don Pasquale, a sophomore end, for the balance of the season as the result of a knee injury last week, but this loss of man power has been off set in part by the return of Allen Bair, 240-pound freshman tackle, who sat out the Wagner game. Learning To Spot A Bargain Can Mean Substantial Saving Want a trip to Europe? A hi-fi set? A backyard swimming pool? If you're that rare shopper who knows exactly how to get all the value his dollar will buy, you can probably afford one big luxury, and certainly many small ones, that you don't see how you can swing. And you can do it without stinting on necessities. The tricks are few and simple. Five principles can help you squeeze more interest from the most monotonously inflexible income. First, learn the signs of quality for every item you buy. Some men, in the market for a suit, look for hand sewing in buttonholes and at the wrist end of a sleeve lining. Actually these so-called signs of quality, often put in just to im- press the public, may reveal nothing about the overall quality of the suit! Hand sewing at the armhole ends of a jacket is more important. Here, small hand stitches do much to make the suit a more comfortable fit. Moral: before you buy, take the trou- ble to find out which "signs of quality" are important, which irrelevant. The method of carpet construction means lit- tle; what matters is thickness of pile, durability of fiber, strength of backing. In electrical appliances, the indispensable sign of quality is the UL label — the guar- antee that it's been tested and found safe by Underwriters' Laboratories. Second, get the core of what you want. Whatever the item, pay only for essen- tials, not for non-functional frills. You might be able to build that dream home after all if you'll eliminate architectural complications, such as split levels, sky- lights and dormers, long hallways, made- to-order windows, that add nothing to the basic quality of the house. An auto manufacturer recently illus- trated this point. To produce a car that embodied the most advanced engineering features and yet could sell at an econ- omy price, he kept the car body design as simple and unadorned as possible. Result: a car, priced at $1295.00, that has front wheel drive and independent suspension. The engine is mounted in such a way as to make the mechanic's inspection job easier, and to make 80% of the car's space available for passen- gers and luggage. Three feet shorter than even a Volkswagen, the Austin "850" has been tailored to provide comfortable riding space for four passengers. Third, don't assume that the higher- priced item is better. A shoe store, ex- perimenting with customer psychology, once priced two pairs of shoes, identical except for color, a dollar apart. Con- fronted with this choice, the majority of buyers actually preferred to pay the higher price. Though you'll probably never walk off with a similar buy, you'll often find that the lower-priced of two items meets your needs more than adequately. This is par- ticularly true of commodities like canned foods, drugs, shaving cream and cosmet- ics, which must meet rigid government standards. Ever pass up the dented food cans sold at reduced prices in super-markets? The food inside a sealed can retains the same quality, dent or no dent. The worst that can happen inside a dented can is that two peach halves become four peach quarters. But spend more to get more when you must. Stainless steel utensils may cost more than plated ware, but they'll last three or four times as long. The same holds true for plated copper or brass ver- sus the real thing. The most attractive on-sale "bargain" is worthless if it induces you to pass up a full-price item you can really use in favor of a reduced item you don't actu- ally need. Incidentally, always try to check the validity of the price reduction. Beware any merchant who claims to be selling all his wares for half-price or less; he can't make even a tiny profit on such a reduction. "Reduced from $10.95" means just what it says; "list price $10.95" means only that the manufacturer suggested $10.95 as the price retailers should charge for his product. On some kinds of items, especially appliances, the retail price includes service. Before assuming that the lower price at another store is a bargain, compare the installation and re- pair services offered. Get whatever you can gratis. You'd be amazed how many perfectly reputable products and services are yours for the asking — or for a nominal fee. Many food and beverage companies offer free recipe booklets to the housewife. Many depart- ment stores maintain Home Planning Centers which give free decorating ad- vice. For expert advice on gardening, home- building, cooking, child-rearing and a host of other subjects, at prices ranging from zero to one dollar, you can't beat U. S. Government booklets. Write to Superintendent of Documents, Govern- ment Printing Office, Washington 25, D.C., and request that you be put on the mailing list to receive a free bi-weekly catalogue, "The Selected List of U. S. Government Publications."

Now we come to the point of the edi- torial: "Sophomores should constitute the White Hats. . . It seems clear that only a sophomore has the unique temperament ,. . . to arouse in freshmen a healthy re- spect for the experience he is beginning." What is this unique temperament of the sophomore? I doubt that it is directed toward preparing the freshmen for aca- demic burdens and responsibilities. The average sophomore . . . would just like to have a good time at the freshmen's ex- pense. . . In closing, I will just say that we, the freshmen, apologize for not giving the White Hats as much trouble as '63 gave '62, but we will try to change our ways, and will perhaps learn to act irrationally in the future. DAVID GROVE, '64 Mr. Webster, Take Note To the Editors of La Vie: For the benefit of confused spellers like myself and for dedicated German students, I would like to impart the cor- rect spelling of the freshman men's dorm. The authority for my findings is the inscription beneath the portrait of the Rev. Lawrence K-e-i-s-t-e-r in the office of President Miller. The late Rev. Keis- ter was a president of LVC from 1907- 1912. This orthography does not indicate the usual ei pronunciation, which has a long i sound, while the German ie takes the long e sound found in Mr. Keister's name. We can, however, take this discrepancy in our stride, I suppose, since for a long time we have been learning other lan- guage mutations and inconsistencies in the King's jive. Sincerely, A RESIDENT OF KEISTER For Whom the Bell Tolls To the Editors of La Vie: Traditions on every campus change as new generations move into the college. Most LV students are unaware of the "murder" which annually entertained campus and town alike. The society weekend plays have been replaced by skits; May Day activities have been de- emphasized. This year the White Hats were placed in charge of the freshman initiation, rather than the usual sophs. Alumni tend to be sentimental about the traditions which ruled the campus in their day, and often deplore their loss. But it is natural that changes should oc- cur with the passage of time. One of Lebanon Valley's oldest tradi- tions was noticeably missing on Home- coming Day: the ringing of the college clock. Unlike most traditions, however, the half-hourly ringing served a prac- tical purpose, that of keeping the col- lege, and incidentally, the town, on time to their activities. I would like to hear those old chimes. Would somebody please fix the clock? AN ALUMNA core of what you want, keep an open mind about price and learn when you can get something for nothing, you'll be saving toward those luxuries you thought you couldn't afford.

Phone UN 7-67 11 Dutchmen Outrun Greyhounds Magnuson Drives 83 Yards For Last Quarter TD Bouncing back from the 27-12 Homecoming defeat at the hands of Muhlen- berg, the Flying Dutchmen dumped Moravian 22-16 on the opponent's own field, October 22. Vera Magnuson turned the tide of the game in the fourth quarter, taking the ball on the kickoff and covering 83 yards to make the goal. Dutchgirls Take Two; Defeat Dickinson 6' 2, Moravian Team 4-1 The Lebanon Valley Girls' hockey team won its final two games of the sea- son against Dickinson, October 12 and Moravian, October 22. The Dickinson team scored only two goals in the former contest, one in each half. Both were made by Sue Pasteur. Joan Myers scored four tallies for LV, two in each half, and Gloria Fitzgee add- ed two more to make the total 6-2. In the Moravian meet, Andrea Auf der Hyde made the only goal for the op- posing team in the first half. Joan Myers made Valley's first score in the first, and the latter half saw one goal apiece made by Regina Juno, Kaye Cassel and Carol Baxter. The final score was 4-1.

CCC's are paid for their work, receive free subscriptions to the magazine and have their names pub- lished in every issue of Collage. Next issue of the magazine, to be released No- vember 15, will feature a guest editorial by David Riesman, author of The Lonely Crowd, and an article on lithography by world-famous lithographer Max Kahn. A charter sbuscription rate of $2 for the next five issues of Collage is currently offered. The Blue and White broke the ice of a scoreless deadlock late in the first half when frosh quarterback Wes MacMillan went over from the two yard line, cli- maxing a 34-yard drive. Holstein ran for the two extra points, leaving the score at 8-0. The Greyhounds came back with a 64- yard march to the LV one with a single minute remaining in the half. Jeff Gan- non went over for the score and the try for extra points was good, tying the score at 8-8. In the third quarter Valley regained the lead as Magnuson scored on a six- yard burst through tackle. John Yajko made it 15-8 with a kick between the poles. The last quarter saw Moravian score from the Valley one again. Making the two-point conversion, the Greyhounds took the lead by one point. The following kickoff was taken by Magnuson, who swept down the sidelines on an 83-yard run to the goal, for the final touchdown of the game. The extra point was good. Moravian had 17 first downs to Val- ley's ten and a passing record of seven completions in 13 attempts. LV com- pleted four out of six aerial plays. Each team lost two fumbles and the Dutch- men were charged with 20 yards in pen- alties as compared to Moravian's 50.

The following hints and suggestions are designed to guide the would-be fashion plate in matching her wardrobe to her own individual features. Jewelry and clothing are cosmetics, and should be worn as such. Palefaces appear less so if pastel shades are worn near the face, more pallid by contrast with a very vivid red or with unrelieved black or white. If you have any tendency to sallow- ness, avoid most browns, yellows and yellow-greens. Instead, wear blue or white near your face — a blouse, or just a string of pearls or turquoise-hued beads. Pearls, by the way, are particular- ly flattering to girls with delicate fea- tures. Figure as well as face can be flattered in dozens of different ways by the shrewd use of color. Are you petite? Your dress should be a solid color, with contrasting accent touches in the form of jewelry, handbag or collar. Bold checks or stripes, or blouse and skirt in different colors, make you appear even shorter than you are. If you're tall, spin the color wheel in just the opposite direction. On the plump side? Give horizontal stripes a wide berth. Tall and thin? Nev- er nod your head up and down when the salesgirl shows you a costume with verti- cal stripes. Not only do dark colors whittle the figure while light or bright colors spot- light excess pounds, but even the way you match your accessories to your cos- tume can make you look slimmer or heavier. Certain color combinations — black with touches of white, red with gold jew- elry — look so "right" that they've become classic. But don't be afraid to experi- ment with less orthodox blends. The jewel tones of blue and green, for example, look wonderful together. Com- binations of pink and red beautified the paintings of Henri Matisse, acclaimed as one of the 20th century's leading decora- tive artists. Avoid other color cliches. Redheads can look attractive in many shades of red and pink — provided their own com- plexions aren't too florid. Many blondes steer clear of biege because they feel it washes them out, but clever use of eye shadow and rouge may provide the add- ed color that will enable them to wear even the palest tans. Experiment — don't reject a possible color choice till you've tried on the garment. Your best color is partly a matter of your own hair and skin coloring, partly a matter of temperament. No one's de- nying that olive-skinned brunettes are us- ually stunning in red, or that a fair, rosy- cheeked complexion seems even more flower-like against a forest-green dress. But it's the hue in which you feel most attractive that enables you to come through with flying colors. Don't be afraid to build your wardrobe around one favorite color. It's a money-saver. Richards Joins Valley Faculty Dr. Benjamin A. Richards has joined the political science and philosophy staff of Lebanon Valley College. After completing undergraduate work at Wesleyan, he obtained a master's de- gree in political science and a doctorate in philosophy at Yale. Dr. Richards has taught at Upsala Col- lege, Southern Connecticut State College, and Quinnipiac College. He is a mem- ber of the American Philosophers Asso- ciation, the American Academy of Po- litical and Social Sciences, Phi Beta Kap- pa, and the American Association of University Professors. Dr. Richards is married and the father of a three-year-old son. Mrs. Pottieger Joins Psychology Department Instructing her first classes in psychol- ogy at LVC this year is Mrs. Elizabeth Pottieger. Graduated from Albright with a B.A. and from Temple with an M.A., she is now conducting general and de- velopmental psychology classes. Mrs. Pottieger's husband is the pastor of St. Paul's Church in Lebanon, where they reside. "So you see," she added with a smile, "I'm also a preacher's wife and, believe me, that's almost another profession in itself." She is also the mother of five children, four girls and one boy, ages seven to sixteen. When the interviewer was surprised at the number of children, she laughed and remarked, "That's one of my pet peeves. Saying you have five children usually brings on a startled look. People must think it's freakish or something. Then usually I get that look which says 'Why aren't you home taking care of them?' " A knowledge of psychology has helped her as a minister's wife. "So often the problems that people have are due to a lack of understanding. Living in a par- sonage, I have learned the personal prob- lems of many people and to be able to help these persons, I needed a better un- derstanding of problems myself. And so, as I learned more of psychology, I be- came interested in teaching it." As for outside activities, Mrs. Pottie- ger has participated in church choirs. "There are so many other things I am interested in but can not do for lack of time," she sighed, "but my family comes first and taking care of five children is another full-time job." Professor Newall Brings English, Music, Puppies To LVC Faculty Post The new face in the English 10 classes this year is a man of varied abilities and is a discerning analyst of the fields in which he takes an interest. Mr. Robert Newall comes to LVC with a wealth of teaching experience and a colorful array of outside interests. He received the B.A. and M.A. de- grees from the University of Pennsylva- nia and studied for a time at Johns Hop- kins University. He taught previously at Norwich College, Vermont, William and Mary College, Virginia, and at the Uni- versity of Maryland, including the Hei- delberg, Germany, armed service exten- sion of that school. Besides English, he has taught history and speech. Mr. Newall is a native of Philadelphia, and comes from a family which can trace its ancestry to colonial America. He has traveled widely, and is particularly en- thusiastic about New England in this country, and France and Italy abroad. Certain parts of Europe fascinate him, partly because of his interest in opera; he enjoys hearing operas performed in their native lands. Besides teaching, the new assistant pro- fessor is an opera and drama critic. He writes for several Vermont newspapers and for Opera, a London publication. An authority on music, he attended the Phil- adelphia Conservatory of Music, where he studied organ, a pursuit which he is now continuing at LVC with Mr. Pierce Getz. Mr. Newall is also a teach- er of piano. While in Europe, Mr. Newall met his wife, whose hometown is Tubingen, Ger- many. A German teacher and interpre- ter, Mrs. Newall will become a United States citizen sometime next year. She has taught in the New York Biblical Seminary. Puppies, Anyone? Along with music and travel, Mr. Newall lists as a favorite hobby the breeding and training of German Shep- herd dogs. His two pets, Caesar and Siegfried, are father and son. Siegfried recently sired two puppies which are for sale; Mr. Newall wishes to advertise this fact and welcomes prospective dog own- ers. The Newalls are much interested in religion and are affiliated with the Pres- byterian Church. Mr. Newall attributes this interest partly to a minister whom he admires: "Dr. Donald Barnhouse, pas- tor of the Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, has been one of the big in- fluences in my life." The new member of the English de- partment remarks that he is "very happy indeed to be here," and is impressed by the "seriousness of purpose on the part of the students," balanced by a "healthy, robust nature." I've Got a Problem LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS Homecoming -1900 Seven Trace Vanishing Man; Two Logic Puzzles Offered In last week's traveler puzzle, the gentleman who was asked to wait in room number one was referred to as the second man in the first statement, then became the seventh man in the end. Since he was both numbers two and seven, only six men were placed in the inn. Seven students submitted correct solutions to the problem: Joe Clark, Dave Czirr, Dave Grove, Jim Gruber, Carol Jimenez, Wayne Selcher and Paul Young. In the unlikely possibility that this puzzle did not offer enough challenge, the follow- ing is offered. Simple logics will provide the solution to this one. Fred, Bob, Jim and Frank were practicing for the frosh-soph tug of war. With some difficulty, Bob could just outpull Fred and Jim together. Bob and Fred were exactly stalemated with Jim and Frank. However, if Fred and Jim changed places, then Frank and Fred won easily. Who was the strongest, the next strongest, etc.? Distance is Sought Still not satisfied?

This is usually a real adventure, but occasionally the child proves to be cooperative. To help her to cope with this problem, we have con- sulted one of the latest manuals on baby- sitting. We now offer the following ex- cerpt from Chapter 169 (or, 13 2 ), entitled "The Importance of Being Adaptable," or "What to Do When the Kid Behaves." For once, Sylvester has slipped silently to Slumberland — and you are left, as the saying goes, "holding the bag." Now what about you? What do you do to while away these energy-filled moments? You miss the "knock-down-drag-out" Battle of Bedtime, don't you? You miss the physical relapse that used to set you sleeping till the door swung open and the Sylvesters, Senior, swept in again. And now you are wondering how to conquer this "brave new world" of boredom. To answer your queries, we have com- piled extensive empirical data concern- ing the constructive consumption of cus- todial leisure. This quiet time is your opportunity for creative activity. And we do urge you to be creative. Discover the stimulation of solitude. 1. As a starter, do try lanyard weav- ing. Nothing satisfies so deeply as the sight of a veritable spectrum of colors twining and mingling, in the best tradi- tion of modern sociology, to produce an effect of unqualified perceptual pleasure. One reservation we feel constrained to express: bring your own gimp. 2. This is an exercise in mental disci- pline. Sit back in an easy chair, relax, and count the designs in the folds of the drapes on the window across the room. Now try it without your abacus. 3. Develop your enthusiasm for yoga. Of course, you will have memorized the positions beforehand. You are using this time to enhance facility, stability, sen- ility. 4. Outline a lecture in which you will explain e=mc 2 to an accelerated group of first-graders. Fall Fashions Feature Vivid Colors, Brevity Possibly the most popular of the new fall colors are the varied hues of purple, ranging from lavender to deep violet. Purple plaid skirts with purple sweaters are typical LVC library attire, as well as the ever-present bermudas and slacks. Another new fashion, the "knee-tick- ler," is gaining supporters among Valley women. These are skirts which stop just at the knee, or even above on some of their more daring advocates. "Knee- ticklers" are worn in the classroom and on dates as well as for more casual acti- vities. With the winter winds howling around the Ad building, the ladies are relying on raccoon-collared coats to keep them warm. Many feel that this style is more practical for winter than many fashions that have come along in recent years. Vests are the newest fad in the male department. A careful observer may see them in a range of colors from conser- vative gray to the more popular red plaid. Big, bulky sweaters are still worn by the fellows, which makes most of the girls happy. A wide variety of styles are worn, the most popular being the plain or striped models. These newest fads, however, are not the most common sight on campus. The traditional sneakers and trench coats will no doubt be around for a long time to come. The reason is a simple one: prac- ticality. (SD) 5. Prove you exist. 6. Recite to yourself your favorite nursery rhyme. Using your background in Freudian psychology, analyze your reasons for liking it.

Thursday, November 10, 1960 Fourteen Seniors To Be Listed In Who's Who; Evaluators Accept Lebanon Valley's Full Quota Bruce Buckwalter Kathy Patterson Bruce Buckwalter Wins Internship In Milwaukee Bruce Buckwalter will serve an ac- counting internship with Price Water- house and Company, a national CPA firm, in their Milwaukee office during the period of December 19 through January 27. Each year LVC accounting students are afforded an opportunity to compete with students of other institutions for intern- ships such as Bruce has received. The program is available in the senior year after the student has completed a mini- mum of five semesters of accounting in- struction. Bruce is a senior in the department of economics and business administration. In 1959-60 he was a departmental stu- dent assistant. The names of fourteen seniors will appear in "Who's Who in American Uni- versities and colleges," the directory published each year to recognize distin- guished American students. Charles Arnett, Ronald Bell, Bruce Buckwalter, Marjorie Burche, Amelia Hartman, Lester Holstein, Barry Kei- nard, William Nixon, Kathleen Patter- son, Marcia Paullin, Peter Riddle, Sam- uel Shubrooks, George Smith and Sheila Taynton were nominated by the faculty and accepted by the "Who's Who" or- ganization. The college may submit a quota of 11-14 names for consideration; this year all of the nominees won the approval of the evaluators. Charles L. Arnett, a pre-medical stu- dent, is president of the Student Chris- tian Association. He is a member of Beta Beta Beta, Faculty-Student Coun- cil and Delta Tau Chi. Chuck is a reci- pient of the Knights of the Valley Award. Whisler Is '64 Chief; Kehler Gets VP Spot The Class of 1964 has elected its of- ficers for the freshman year. They are Ken Whisler, president; Harry Kehler, vice-president; Judy Tanno, secretary, Ken Lee, treasurer; and Wes MacMillan, Faculty-Student Council representative. The election took place October 27 in the Administration Building. Bill Altland headed the committee which directed the voting. Amy Hartman Peter Riddle Les Holstein Marj Burche Saturday Dance Highlights Gander Weekend Activities "Squaw Scramble," an informal dance sponsored by RWSGA and WCC, will highlight Gander Weekend on Saturday, N ovember 12. The dance will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. in the auxiliary gym. Women are asked to make an Indian headdress for their date and a prize will be award- ed for the most original. Tickets will be sold at the door, but may be bought in advance from any member of the spon- soring associations. Gander Weekend is an annual LVC social activity during which rules of com- mon courtesy are reversed. Women invite dates to the dance and pay the ex- penses. They also hold chairs and doors for the men in the dining hall. Campus Will Preview PMEA Choir Concert The Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir and Orchestra will present a con- cert on Tuesday, November 29, at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. Admission is free. It will be a campus preview of the per- formance to be given for the Pennsyl- vania Music Educators Association state convention in Harrisburg. These groups will perform the Can- ticle of Christmas by Giannini, featuring Kenneth Hays as baritone soloist; Motet No. 1 by Bach; and Butterfly's Entrance from Madame Butterfly by Puccini, with Sandra Stetler, soprano soloist. ISC Dance Will Be First In Dining Hall Johnny Leffler and his orchestra will provide the music for the annual Inter- society Dance to be held November 19, from 9 to 12 p.m. in the college dining hall. Dress for the dance is semi-formal, the women wearing cocktail dresses or gowns and the men dark suits and ties. Refreshments, consisting of punch and cheese, onion and shrimp dips, will be available throughout the dance. Tickets are $2.00 a couple. The Intersociety Dance is sponsored jointly by Delphian, Clio, Kalo, Knights of the Valley and Philo. Organization presidents head the various committees. Clio has charge of tickets and favors; Delphian, refreshments; Knights, public- ity; and Philo, the band. Mrs. Millard is serving as special adviser. Sometime during the evening, the new- ly-selected pledges of Delphian and Clio will be honored. Barry Danfelt, president of the In- tersociety Council, stresses that permis- sion to hold the dance in the college dining hall is not to be taken for grant- ed. The future depends on the results of this year's venture. Ronald B. Bell received the Maude P. Laughlin Scholarship Award for 1959. He is a history major and a member of the Political Science Club, Knights of the Valley and Faculty-Student Council. He is captain of the tennis team. Last year he was secretary-treas- urer of the Men's Senate and counselor in the freshman dormitory. Bruce W.

RWSGA president Marcia V. Paullin, a student proctor in Sheridan Hall, was faculty editor of the Quitfie published by her class. She participates in the acti- vities of the Student PSEA and is a WAA officer, having played junior var- sity hockey and women's basketball. George Smith Sam Shubrooks Pol Sci Party Watches Kennedy Win Election The Political Science Club held an election day party in the Carnegie Lounge Tuesday evening for the benefit of all students who wished to watch as Senator John F. Kennedy won the presidential election. LVC women were given extended per- missions in order to watch the proceed- ings until 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Many men students remained later until the final returns from the west coast were in. Pol Sci Club members served coffee and doughnuts free of charge to the view- ers. Two additional television sets were added to the console in the lounge to accommodate the crowd. A counselor in Sheridan-West Hall I and secretary of the Faculty-Student , Council, Kathleen J.

The admission for the concert will be $1.00 for the general public and $.50 for stu- dents. The program will include the Over- ture and Allegro by Couperin, arranged by Milhaud. This work is among some of the Baroque music which has been written for modern orchestra. Following this selection will be the First Piano Concerto in E minor by Chopin with Marcia Pickwell, pianist. This was one of Chopin's early com- positions written after he had gone to Paris to play for the royalty. The first movement is a lyrical section while the second movement is in the form of a noctourne. After this performance, the or- chestra will play the Jupiter Symphony by Mozart, written at the peak of his creative period. Miss Pickwell is a graduate of Princi- pia College where she received her B.A. in Music. She also was graduated from Juilliard School of Music. She has stud- ied in Switzerland with Alfred Cortot, a See "Orchestra," page 5 All-Campus Art Exhibition Will Honor Student Work For the purpose of promoting interest in creative art among LVC students, an exhibit of paintings and sketches will be placed in the audio-visual room of the library from November 29 to December 14. Entries will be limited to the under- graduate students of Lebanon Valley, and prizes will be awarded for superior work. Students may indicate their intention to participate by completing the applica- tion blank on page five and placing it in the La Vie mailbox or submitting it di- rectly to Miss Gail Bull, chairman of the display. Entries should be prepared by the artists and must be in the hands of the chairman no later than Decem- ber 5. The judges, Miss Fencil, Mrs. Faber and Mr. Batchelor, will select the three finest works on the basis of imagina- tion, creativity and mechanical applica- tion of the artistic medium. The contest is limited to oils, pastels, sketches and the like. Three prizes, totalling $10.00 in all, will be awarded to the winners. The results of the contest will be re- ported in the December 15 issue of La Vie, and the winning entries will be fur- ther displayed at an appropriate place on the campus. If possible, they will also be exhibited in an art supply store in the area. All other entries will be returned to the artists before Christmas vacation. This contest will mark the first oppor- tunity for the campus to view the works of students alone. The success of this venture and the possibility of making it an annual occurrence will depend upon the participation of the students. Kap La Sig To Sponsor Jazz Concert In Engle "Jazz Goes to Engle," the seventh an- nual jazz concert sponsored by Kappa Lambda Sigma, will be presented Friday, November 18 at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. The band, composed of seventeen musicians from the Lebanon Valley de- partment of music, is under the direction of Charlie Sharman. This year's pro- gram will be completely different, featur- ing big band numbers rearranged by band members Ronald Fredriksen, Ray Lich- tenwalter. Jack Markert, Nolan Miller and Charlie Sharman. Admission price is $1.00; tickets can be purchased from any Kap La Sig mem- ber. Tickets will be sold at the door only until house capacity is reached.

Mealtime M There are those of us on campus and in America who prefer to believe that some areas of life can proceed successfully without dictation and regulation by authorities. We would like to believe this not only of matters regarding our per- sonal lives, but of many national affairs also. However, evidence that our faith in the autonomy and self-governing ability of human beings is well-founded is often hard to find. LVC students, for example, cannot even conduct themselves admirably in the potentially pleasant practice of eating in the dining hall. Must the dining hall com- mittee mimeograph, kindergarten-style, a list of maxims to follow when gathering in the lobby and making one's way to the tables? Many girls (as well as fellows) have been inexcusably pushed and shoved through doors or to and from coat han- gers, and otherwise poorly treated upon arrival for meals in the evenings. Pangs Should Not Produce Panic Since we do eat three meals a day at Lebanon Valley, we should exhibit bet- ter control of hunger pangs than would a herd of starving savages. It seems hardly necessary that we need to fight, as if for survival, practically trampling each other underfoot to get at the food. If we would arrive for dinner at 5:55 and not before, proceeding directly to the tables, the congestion would modulate to a flow. Furthermore, if table heads would organize four men and four women at a table, where possible, and main- tain groups of essentially the same people, the mad rush for a cherished seat would be upgraded into an orderly filing into the hall with no wandering around. All-male or all-femal ecliques would disappear as well. This failing, the widespread (and somewhat reactionary) suggestion has been made by the girls that ladies, upon arriving at 5:55 sharp, should precede the gentle- men to the tables. Fellows would remain in the lobby for perhaps two minutes while the girls enter. Waiters Cringe At Cafeteria-Style Meals The cafeteria-style meals must be pure frustration for waiters who clear the tables. Recently at least five tables were observed on one side of the dining hall with less than half of the chairs occupied in every case. Even so, students gravitated to still other empty tables rather than filling in the others. This happens consistently at cafeteria meals. Are we producing a school of mannerless anti-socials? The dining hall authorities eliminated the "traffic cop" head waiters who directed each student to a table, in the belief that this was unnecessary. Must such a regulator be re-instated so that waiters do not have to place on all of the tables numerous un- needed pitchers, kecthup bottles, and the like? Or to save the waiters from clearing used tables all over the hall when actually only half are really required? If college students cannot conduct themselves without police-like dictation in such simple matters as politeness and consideration, how can any of us possibly muster any faith in the ability of a whole nation to order itself effectively without stringent government controls? The restrictions dominant in the dining hall in past years have been lifted. Many of us found those rules offensive to our "ability to govern ourselves." We learned as nations learn that such decrees can be abusively enforced with discipline carried to an extreme. If Americans can be counted upon to behave en masse as some of us do in matters of etiquette, we should not be surprised when candidates for federal offices promise us strict controls and are cheered for it. We cheer those who undertake to think for us and direct our ways; and we realize too late that in so doing we have lost a certain dignity. (JMK) Don't Just Complain About Lack of School Spirit Follow The Band When It Passes Your Dorm After Supper Tomorrow Night A Half-Hour Spent In Support of Your Team Could Mean Victory Against Washington and Jefferson CHEER FOR THE DUTCHMEN! Letters to La Vie A Sophomore Talks Back To the Editors of La Vie: It seems to me that the letter to this paper in the issue of October 27 entitled "The Freshman Doth Protest" was obvi- ously from a biased and slightly disil- lusioned member of the class of 1964. I think there is no more than pure class sentiment as a basis for his arguments against the editor and the initiation pro- gram. ..itially, our "frosh friend" seems to think that Miss Kauffman's complaint of a lack of rebellion in this present fresh- man class is totally absurd. In a small way he might be considered justified in making such a statement. I could find no serious reason why the frosh would have found it necessary to rebel. In my opinion, this year's initiation program was only slightly more than a glorified lawn party. I will agree that strenuous physical exercises do little to transform high school "children" into college men and women. However, such activities as a full week of silly costumes or carrying books in idiotic containers, as was done last year, would have done more good than "frosh frolics." Our "frosh friend" is not justified in criticizing the class of 1963 for their no- torious revolt. In previous years, the freshman class that was not tempted to rebel was seldom seen. Consequently, when the class of '63 was being initiated into the campus life of this college, the almost inevitable rebellion occurred. The spirit of rebellion (perhaps this is what Miss Kauffman had in mind) gripped the class of '63. But the unfor- tunate result was the fault of the weak initiation program. The entire class of '62 did not support the efforts of a few initiators; the program collapsed be- cause the sophs let the frosh get away with their revolt. I would like to point out that I did not intend to use this incident af\ a means of criticizing the present junior class. I merely wanted to defend the actions of '63. Last year's revolt did not make our class better or worse than pre- vious classes. Any other class would have done the same under similar cir- cumstances. Once again let me return to our "frosh friend." He seems to think that the "maze of laws, regulations and penal- ties" was an excessive burden on the shoulders of the members of his class. May I point out that this year's list of rules was only one-third to one-half as large as the list which confronted the class of '63. Perhaps a longer, more restrictive set of regulations would have made this year's initiation more mean- ingful. Also may I point out that the "flimsy excuse that the football players had been Drdered to sleep" on the morning of the tug was not used for the first time this year. This rule was made last year for tne benent of the team, and is fully justified if an extra hour's sleep means a better gridiron performance. In closing I shall simply state that I am in full support of Miss Kauffman's editorial of October 15. I would like to see the organization known as the White Hats operated predominantly by sophomores when next year rolls around. RALPH L. LEHMAN, '63 Prelude vs. Congregation To the Editors of La Vie: From time to time there has been con- siderable discussion and complaint from the student body concerning the weekly chapel services. These complaints gen- erally center upon the quality, or lack of quality, of these services; more particu- larly they dwell on the chapel speakers. While those of us who are responsible for these services are earnestly seeking to improve their quality, let it be re- membered by the student body that these weekly "meetings" should be precisely what they are referred to as being — ser- vices. It appears that too often our primary objective is one of desiring entertain- ment, whereas the primary objective of such a service should be worship. This is not a "town hall" meeting; we gather in God's house. Is it too great a sacrifice to pay re- This Is Progress You are an American. You were born in the United States, brought up in a middle-class home in a middle-class town, the child of middle-class parents. And you have it made. You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, my friend. You pay your taxes and your social security and you sit back and let the wheels of progressive government rock you in its lap of luxury. You don't say the word "socialism," because it has nasty connotations, but you certainly do enjoy its benefits. You don't have to worry about anything anymore. Life in America comes on the installment plan. Money is never too hard to come by, because there's always someone to look out for your interests. You may be perfectly capable of advancing yourself, but you are grouped with all the poor unfortunates who can't hold their own, and you like it that way. This is progress. Perhaps you work for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and someone decides you aren't getting enough money, and they call a strike and tell you not to work until your pay is raised. That's all right with you, so you stay home for a week or two, or even three, and you do nothing, except march in a few picket lines. And you cripple an industry that's already fighting for its life in competition with the trucking lines and airlines, and cause it to lose millions of dollars. Then you go back to work and expect them to pay you a larger salary. Someone else got that raise for you, and the greedy ogre of Management (but don't call it Free Enterprise) was banished once more, and so you're happy. You can also rest assured that the generous soul who called that strike has probably padded his pockets quite well with the long green. But it's fashionable to be a little dishonest these days. Besides, if you have enough ambition to better yourself through honest channels, the government just takes a larger slice of it away from you in taxes, so why bother? Maybe someday our progressive government will take everyone's money and put it in a great big bowl. Then everyone will take an equal share and no one will be jealous of anyone else. It doesn't matter who does the most work in our society; everyone must share and share alike. This is progress. Are you capable of saving for your old age? Why worry about it? The gov- ernment will take good care of you. They'll use your own social security money and pass it back to you in monthly payments. Line up, kiddies; daddy will give you your allowance now. There is much to be said for social conscience; a government should shoulder the responsibility of helping citizens in need. It should offer some kind of aid to college students who can't afford college (such as loans to be paid back out of the added salary that further education helps you to earn instead of gifts which come out of everyone's pockets). But when a government seeks to lead us by the hand from babyhood to the grave, on an all-for-one and one-for-all basis, we can expect the laziest civilization in history. Persons who are more capable should enjoy the fruits of their labor. Should the time ever come that all men share equally in all things, there will no longer be cause for the average man to try to better himself. Civilizations collapse when everyone decides to "let John do it." If John isn't rewarded, he simply will not do it anymore. (PHR) To Cut Or Not To Cut "Mass Cut!" The call goes out and is followed by complete or partial evacua- tion of the classroom. Unfortunately the reaction does not start or stop at this point. More serious events surround this exodus. If the evacuation is complete the reaction may be tangibly expressed in the form of a surprise test or uncomfortable comments from the snubbed professor. Every teacher has feelings and deserves the right to express them at least as much as does any student who has ever been "stood up" on a date. The time and effort which go into the preparation of any lesson, good or bad, are more than that pro- ceeding a student's date. Bad feelings, if not permanent damage to pupils' grades, are always certain to result. If the evacuation is incomplete and a few "prudes" or "goody-goodies" remain in the classroom, bad feelings again result. However, in this case the strained relations exist not only between teacher and pupils, but also among the pupils themselves. The "daring" ones look back in disgust on those who linger behind. Rarely does it appear to them that those who remain may not be merely trying to win the teacher's favor. Some of these non-conformists may actually be considering the fact that college classes do cost money and cutting them does waste it. A few of them may even be risking the ire of their classmates because they cling to an old-fashioned ideal of respect for people's feelings, even when the person is a teacher. The escapees from the confines of the classroom frequently convince them- selves that they will gain more by cutting than by sitting uninterestedly in class. Rarely do their rationalizations ring true. The hour out of class is more frequently spent in rather aimless talk at Hot Dog's or the Snack Bar than in purposeful study in the dormitory or the library. Perhaps the blame for mass cuts should not lie completely on the student. Teachers sometimes do fail to exert the effort necessary to make classtime really interesting and worthwhile for both themselves and their students. The instinct of revolt is stimulated by the awareness that one is a captive and grows when one has time to be reminded of it. One must also allow for the fact that even the best of teachers at times falls victim to the mass cut. Perhaps this is due to the fact that in a college with a no- cut policy the prospect of cutting presents an interesting though mild form of rebel- lion against authority. Teachers who allow even limited individual cuts have fewer problems with mass cuts probably because they reduce the appeal of the cut's challenge. Many colleges recognize these conditions and adopt the policy of limited cuts. Frequently the privilege of a cut is used as incentive toward making better grades by granting special license to dean's list students. Perhaps it would be valu- able to consider a more liberal policy for Lebanon Valley College. Whatever policy is adopted by teacher or administration, it is essential that a policy of mature wisdom and thoughtfulness be adopted by the students. The cry of "mass cut" may then someday be stricken from the popular collegiate vocabulary. (CFM) spect to the Almighty when entering the sanctuary? Is it asking too much to fore- go talking and chattering upon entering the church? Have we considered the value of setting aside this one hour for meditation and spiritual growth, forget- ting about classes and text books, even if we are seated in the rear balcony? Would not a change in attitude on the part of the student body from one of lack of respect to our churchly environ- ment to one of spiritual meditation ef- fect the greatest and most positive change in the quality of the chapel ser- vices? Consider, for example, the organ prel- ude. While the students have shown a marked improvement at times, soft play- ing on the organ is usually drowned out See "Letters," page 4 La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 10, 1960 PAGE THREE Dr. George G. Struble Writes Of People And Cities Of Switzerland Men have long dreamed of achieving a perfect society, a type of social organi- zation where the ancient problems of poverty, disease, and crime would disappear, where men would live together in peace and contentment and no one would be dissatisfied with his lot. Blueprints for such a social order have been written by Plato, Sir Thomas More (who gave us the name Utopia), by Francis Bacon, and by many others. Though the ideal remains as unattainable today as it was in Plato's time, I think it is clear that some countries in some periods of history have come closer to the dream of Shangri-La than have others. Indeed, one of the major causes of tension in the world today arises from the fact that people of some countries, like China and the Congo, have been able to share so little in the material wealth which modern technology theor- etically could make available for every- one. Countries like our own America, by means of tariff barriers and other re- strictions on the flow of goods and ideas, have built for themselves a citadel of privilege, so that within the protected area life comes very close to what an earlier age would have looked upon as Utopian. Switzerland Approaches Ideal Of the countries of Europe, Switzer- land, it seems to me, comes closest to the Utopian ideal. Most American tour- ists go to Switzerland for the sake of its mountain scenery; and it cannot be de- nied that its landscapes are magnificent. But when Mrs. Struble and I decided to establish (residence in Neuchatel, our choice was determined primarily by lin- guistic considerations. The people of Neuchatel claim, with some justification, that their French is the best in the world. But having enrolled at the University of Neuchatel in order to improve our French, we soon became interested in other aspects of French culture. Many of the students at the University of Neu- chatel had come from the German- or Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland. From them we learned about life in oth- er parts of Switzerland and gained in- sights into the Swiss point of view on all sorts of subjects. We also made many trips into the sur- rounding territory. Some of these trips were guided bus tours conducted by the University for the benefit of its students; some of them were week-end trips by train made on our own initiative. We visited Lausanne, Geneva, Vevey, Mon- treux, Sion, Zurich, Bern, Interlaken, Ba- sel, Lucerne, and Lugano. We visited watch factories, cigarette factories, wine cellars, farms, chateaux, churches, mili- tary installations, construction works, and private homes. We learned that Switzerland has al- most as much cultural diversity as it has of linguistic diversity. It would be diffi- cult to find in America two cities as dif- ferent from each other as Zurich, indus- trial and manufacturing center of north- ern Switzerland, and Geneva, center of international diplomacy, international Protestantism, and international banking. New York is certainly the most inter- national (and un-American) of our American cities, but New Yorkers are provincial when compared to the inter- national-mindedness of the people of Geneva. Miller Takes Spot On ECAC Team Swiss Cities Have "Personalities" Nearly every city of Switzerland has its distinctive quality. Interlaken is a tourist center; St. Moritz is famous for its winter sports; Lucerne for its music and cultural interests; Lugano for the indolent hedonism of its fine foods, sunny skies, and the breath-taking beau- ties of its vistas. The amazing thing is that all these diversities are crowded into a territory smaller than our state of West Virginia. Within a matter of hours one passes from the wheat and dairy regions of northern Switzerland, through the vineyards of the eastern cantons and the fruitlands of Valais, to the semi-tropical vegetation of Ticino and the lake coun- try south of the Alps. Similarly, one finds great differences in ethnology. The people of the north are hard-working, energetic, aggressive. In the region of Neuchatel, where the French influences dominate, one finds great urbanity, an appreciation of the finest in art and literature, and an old- fashioned politvs.se rare today in the Dutch Flier by Chip Burkhardt Basketball is just around the corner. Every evening for the past month LVC court hopefuls have been shooting, run- ning, passing and working on defense toward the goal of producing a winning team. This season will find a new coach handling the reigns of the Valley squad. Don Grider, who coached Annville- Cleona High to a successful season last year, will succeed Dean George R. Mar- quette, who manned the Dutchmen for eight seasons. Coach Grider feels that if he keeps his squad intact, he should have a good team. Top scoring threat will be last year's high man, Hank Van de Water, along with Art Forstater, Glen Coates, Steve Wisler and Hi Fitzgerald, who should give the Dutchmen fair speed, average shooting and strong rebounding. The new coach also considers the team's strongest asset to be its spirit and hustle, both offensively and defensively. With support from the student body, this squad could equal or surpass the performance of last year's fine team. A standing-room-only crowd would give them a real reason for winning. Dutchmen Stopped On Albright Two With Seconds Remaining; Lose 7-6 The Flying Dutchmen lost to Albright by a single point, checked on the op- ponents' two yard line with only seconds remaining in the game, at the Lions' homecoming affair last Saturday. The final score read 7-6. The first half saw neither team posing France where it had its origin. Geneva is highly international and sensitive to every nuance of change in world opin- ion. In Lugano the culture is essentially Italian: gay colors, love of the out-of- doors, vivacity and charm, and a devo- tion to the culinary arts. At the present moment Switzerland is riding high on a wave of prosperity. But unlike the situation in some other coun- tries, it is a prosperity shared by all the people. If there is poverty or destitution in Switzerland, I saw no evidence of it. The factories are operating at full capa- city, construction work is going on ev- erywhere, restaurants are crowded with people (not all of them tourists), and in the shops one sees choice products gath- ered from all over the world. Because of Switzerland's low tariff rates, one can often buy foreign commodities there for less than one would pay in the country where they are manufactured and where protective tariffs keep prices artificially high. Famous For Neutrality In international affairs Switzerland is traditionally neutral. Though very inter- nationally-minded, the Swiss in their Al- pine fastness hold themselves above the passions that sway other men. The so- cial structure is basically capitalistic; but they keep capitalism well in check and by means of price controls and social legislation make sure that the big corpor- ations do not take undue advantage of the consumer. Switzerland has not joined NATO, it is not a member of the Euro- pean Common Market, and it does not even belong to the United Nations. It has an extensive trade with Russia, but Communism has not been able to gain a foothold there as it has in France and Italy. When his own government pro- vides for his needs as the Swiss govern- ment does, the citizen is not tempted to run after an alien and dubious ideol- ogy. Let America and the other countries of the free world learn the lesson of Switzerland. If Communism is to be con- tained, it will not be by atomic bombs, expensive outlays for missile programs, military alliances and F.B.I, investiga- tions of subversive thinking, but by a system of social controls so just that it will render the shadowy promises of Communism unattractive. Dave Miller, senior guard and four- year veteran on the LV football squad, placed on the ECAC All East Team last week. He is co-captain of the Flying Dutchmen. Vera Magnuson, senior halfback from Harrisburg, was also nominated for the voting. He placed on the team in mid- October as the result of his performance in the Upsala game. The ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) selections were begun four years ago. The players are selected by polls, and a new vote is made each week. Wesleyan Lecturer Will Visit Campus Mr. Charles E. Martz, lecturer from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, will visit Lebanon Valley, Wednesday, November 30. Any students, particularly college sen- iors, who might be interested in the one and two-year programs offered at Wesley- an should arrange an appointment to dis- cuss these with Mr. Martz. These pro- grams lead to the degree of Master of Arts in teaching. Students who are interested in an in- terview with Mr. Martz should report to their department heads or directly to the administrative assistant. A time schedule for conferences will be com- piled and the students will be notified of the time that they can meet with Mr. Martz. Pamphlets which explain these pro- grams are available in the office of the administrative assistant. Employees Of Valley Give To County Drive Mr. Alex J. Fehr, assistant professor of political science, has announced that a total of $719.50 was contributed by the employees of Lebanon Valley College to the 1960 Lebanon County Community Chest campaign. The sum collected this year set a new record for the college. The overall aver- age contributions for all employees amounted to $4.50. For members of the faculty and administration the average contribution was approximately $7.20. Two Chemistry Majors Enter Honors Program Barbara Wogisch and Kenneth Light will participate in the chemistry depart- ment honors program. Both are juniors and chemistry majors. Juniors and seniors may participate in the departmental honors program if they have demonstrated a high scholastic pro- ficiency in both theoretical and experi- mental chemistry. To be recommended for departmental honors, a student is required: (1) to sub- mit a thesis based on an extensive labora- tory investigation of an original problem; (2) to defend the thesis before an ap- propriate examining committee. Bar- bara's intended project is oxidation of alpha - pinene and Ken's is the reduction study of aryl - alkyl ketones. Dr. Herbert V. Mayer Speaks About Kremlin "A New Look at the Kremlin" was the topic of Dr. Herbert V. Mayer, pres- ident of American Viewpoint, Inc., cha- pel speaker of Tuesday, November 8. Dr. Mayer received degrees from Oberlin College, Boston University, and Harvard University. He is listed for his outstanding youth work including his book, Who?. .Me?, his leadership in na- tional organizations, his pioneering in aviation, and his participation in civic affairs in Who's Who, World Biography, and Who's Who in American Education. In 1940 Dr. Mayer became vice presi- dent of the Council for Democracy and led in the national program to build up America's defenses and stimulate better understanding of world problems. He was Quadripartite Policy Officer for U. S. Military Government during 1947 and 1948 in Germany handling top-level is- sues and coordinating American Zone administration with the Allied Powers. Since 1949 Dr. Mayer has been presi- dent of American Viewpoint, Inc., the nation's oldest citizenship education or- ganization. Dr. Mayer also spoke at 1:00 p.m. in the audio visual room of the library. He was sponsored by the department of history and political science. Miss Reeve To Present Piano Recital In Engle Miss Joan Reeve, instructor of piano in the department of music, will present a faculty recital in Engle Hall on Mon- day, November 14, at 8:30 p.m. Miss Reeve is presently fulfilling the requirements for the Artist Diploma at the Philadelphia Musical Academy where she will give a graduation recital, No- vember 13 of this year. She is now studying under Dr. Charles DeBodo. After completing her high school and preparatory years in music, she studied at Beaver College and at the University of Pennsylvania, where she is currently a candidate for the degree of Master of Arts with a major in music. She has re- cently been certified as a teacher of piano by the Pennsylvania Teachers Education Association. Miss Reeve's program will include works by Liszt, Brahms, Debussy and Bartok.

LVC Students Attend Education Conference Sylvia Bucher, Kristine Kreider, Judy Snowberger and Jack Turner accompan- ied by Dr. Gilbert D. McKlveen repre- sented Lebanon Valley at the Southern District meeting of the Pennsylvania State Education Association which took place at Camp Curtin Junior High School in Harrisburg, Friday, Novem- ber 4. The opening comments were delivered by J. Kenneth Gabler, president of the Southern District of PSEA. Mrs. Bertha Boyd, State president of PSEA, greeted the group and Robert A. Christie, Exec- utive Director, Governor's Committee on Education, gave the key note address. Following the opening session depart- mental discussion groups took place. The student group elected its officers for the coming year. Sylvia Bucher of LVC was chosen to be a member at large of the executive council. Clifton Daniel addressed the group following the evening meal. At the end of his speech, "USA Foreign Relations and the Role of the Next President," he answered any question that the teachers proposed. a serious threat, as both were hampered by the slippery footing and wet pig- skin. In the third quarter John Yajko fell on an Albright fumble at the Lions' 14. Les Holstein then carried to the 11, Magnuson pushed to the five, and Hol- stein carried it over the line in two more plays. Albright blocked the try for extra point, leaving the score 6-0. In the fourth quarter the Lions roared back to the Valley 27, where Gary Chap- man passed to Guy Sheeler for a score. The game-winning point after touchdown was added by the foot of Jack DeLor- enzo. The victory extended Albright's win- ning streak to eleven games and moved them into the front position in the col- lege division of the Middle Atlantic Conference. Their season record is now 7-0. Valley's statistics are as follows: 12 first downs, 60 yards gained on the ground and 128 in the air on 12 com- pletions in 23 pass attempts. Professor Smith To Attend Convention Robert W. Smith, music department chairman, will represent LVC at the thirty-sixth annual meeting of the Na- tional Association of Schools of Music, November 25-26 in Chicago.

PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 10, 1960 How To Understand Women A Woman is a foreign land Of which, though there he settle young A man will ne'er quite understand The customs, politics and tongue. In the interest of aiding the poor, pur- sued males of LVC, La Vie offers the following timely tips on fathoming the female psyche. Since many a male goose is cooked on Gander Weekend, these sug- gestions may also be used in reverse, to rid oneself of overzealous members of the fair sex. 1. Act devoted. Brush imaginary dust from her shoulder, hold hands under the dinner table, touch your lips to the glass her lips have touched — and don't worry if the gesture seems old hat or corny. These suggestions, for instance, come from a 2,000 year old treatise on "The Art of Love." Did they work? So well that Ovid, the author, was obliged to write a sequel telling men how to avoid entangling alliances! 2. Act jealous. A man who's unrea- sonable — within reasonable limits, of course — is one of the most effective ego- builders a woman can have. Therefore, grumble a bit when she smiles fetchingly at another man. If you're still single and not yet at the going-steady stage, ask if she's free for a date in a tone that im- plies you think you're competing with at least two other guys. Never let her suspect that you know you're her only beau, even if you know it for a fact! 3. Know what to say. Suppose she's made an obvious effort to look glamor- ous and you can't remember whether you've seen the dress before. Or you'd like to compliment her on her flair for fashion but you wouldn't know the dif- ference between an Empire line and a chain gang. Get out of it graciously — and effectively — by saying simply, "How lovely you look!" Most women resent the condescending "little woman" approach so, if you com- pliment her on her knowledge of batting averages or the international situation, don't sound as if it's a miracle that she knows these things. Virtually every wo- man likes to be proud of her man's intel- lect, so profit from the example of a gent who was famous for his ability to con- verse on any topic. His name: Giovanni Giacomo Casanova. 4. Lean to read her signals. Many men suspect — and many women cheerfully ad- mit — that women have a language of their own, expressed in tonal variations and pauses between words as well as in the words themselves. You'll never speak it, but for optimum success with bilingual ladies, it behooves you to un- derstand a little of it. Watch out for the significent pause. Have you asked her if your pooch can come along on your romantic evening stroll, and has she hesitated just a few seconds before saying yes? Drop the subject; if Rover comes along, you'll be in the doghouse. The same goes for a cautious, over- polite tone; if she'd really love to go to your class reunion, she'd have said so heartily. Be alert, too, for the hint so indirect as to be the opposite of what it sounds like. "Don't bother to get any- thing for my birthday" really means "don't forget, now" — and don't you for- get it. 5. Watch your grooming. Women have one trait in common with the less beautiful sex; they feel flattered when a date or mate takes special pains to be attractive. Beau Brummel broke hearts in 19th century England simply because he had a good tailor, and Lord Byron's collars, cleverly arranged to bare his muscular throat, set all of female Eu- rope a-throb. Lacking new safety razors and Old Spice, 16th century swains powdered and perfumed their beards. 6. Give the right type of gift. Gifts, like courtesies, should be small and fre- quent, rather than rare and extravagant, if you're going to give her the sense of appreciation she craves. Take a tip from Napoleon, who courted his second bride by arranging to have flowers sent to her every day — more then a century be- fore the days of flowers by wire! 7. Accept her faults. Presumably your objective is to join them, not beat them, so why start needless arguments? Is she always late? Be unpunctual with her! Recognize that certain beliefs are fixedly rooted in the feminine mind, and don't attempt to debunk such articles of faith as the following: every woman could be pretty if she'd just spend as much time on herself as that model in the magazine, all bachelors are secretly unhappy with their lot and — perhaps the most cherish- ed belief of all — no man really under- stands women. Students To Discuss Education In USSR Sheila Taynton will lead a discussion on "Education in Russia" at the Student Pennsylvania State Education Associa- tion's monthly meeting this evening at 7:00 p.m. Sheila will base her comments on her recent trip to the USSR. The discussion will take place in Philo Hall of the Ad- ministration Building. All PSEA mem- bers and any other interested persons are invited to attend. The membership campaign of the Gos- sard Chapter of student PSEA has offi- cially closed with a total of ninety-eight persons joining. This exceeds last year's membership by ten persons. Anyone else interested in joining the club should see either Sylvia Bucher or Kristine Kreider. LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS tye WANT'£ ro KNOW MoZA£T W&TTg ANYW<5 rot- GX&Mf VariationOn ATheme (A collegiate condensation of the play by Eugene Ionesco) How do you like not being a rhinoc- eros? Or haven't you ever thought about it? There are certain things a college stu- dent would do well to ponder, and not being a rhinoceros is one of these. With a word of thanks to Eugene Ionesco, the French playwright whose modernistic dra- ma Rhinoceros is appearing in New York this season, I should like to offer some meditation on this theme. You are not a rhinoceros — and you're glad! You walk across the campus, nod and smile at your classmates, and say to yourself, "Boy, am I glad I'm not a rhinoceros!" You wake up one morning and check to see whether your roommate, too, has heard the alarm clock. As usual, he has not. You call him. You hear him getting out of bed while you are dressing. He sounds clumsier than he ordinarily is. You turn to see what is wrong. And you shriek. His skin is tough and green. There is a horn protruding from his head. His pa- jamas lie torn to ribbons on the bed. He is much bigger than he was last night. The truth hits you. Your room- mate has become a rhinoceros. You rush into the hall and scream to your friends. But they do not believe you. They hear the thud of a huge lum- bering figure crashing down the steps and out of the" dorm. But this is a coin- cidence. Of course it is. Your friends pat your shoulder. "You need something in your stomach. Let's go to the dining hall." There is talk in the dining hall. The early risers spotted a rhinoceros charg- ing down the streets of Annville. A week passes. You are "sleeping in." Your morning classes have been can- celled. Most of the professors are rhi- noceroses now and there is no longer a common ground for communication. A week passes. You are talking with one of your friends. This rhinoceros bit is really bad news. Do you see those things running around everywhere? It's disgusting." "It sure is," your friend says. "It's get- ting to the point where you aren't sure — " But his voice has turned to a frenzied trumpeting and you watch as he crushes the bushes in his path and dis- appears around the corner of the library. A week passes. You are lonely, cold, and hungry. You are living in the rubble that was once your dormitory. The din- ing hall, too, has been demolished by the clomping, careening beasts that were once your classmates. You have no class- es. You have no discussions, no extra- curricular activities. You are the only human being on campus. You are the only human being on earth. How does it feel to be a non-rhino- ceros? Do you favor the White Hats? Do you want a big name band for the Junior Prom? Do you go along with mass cuts? Can you give me a quote on your po- sition? You have no one to consult now. There is nothing to conform to for these answers and the other answers you used to give. In fact, there are none of these questions any more. There are no White Hats, for there are no freshmen — and no group to ini- tiate them if there were freshmen. There is not going to be a Junior Prom, be- cause rhinoceroses do not like to dance. They do not attend classes either; so there is no cut problem. You fumble in the debris until you find what you have been seeking — the one piece of mirror that was not shat- tered in the stampedes. You crouch on the ground and contemplate the face you see. You hear their trumpetings in the background. " 'Ah, if only I had a tough hide and that magnificent dark green color, a de- cent hairless nudity like theirs . . . Alas, I would never become a rhinoc- eros.' " So you think you would never want to be a rhinoceros? So you think you are not a rhinoceros? Have you checked a mirror lately? (MIX) Hdirlessness And Household Chores Spell Manliness In Certain Lands Broad shoulders and a well-thatched chest may be the picture that flashes across one's mind when thinking of the ideal man. But these qualities count for naught in many parts of the world, where quite a different vision of male perfec- tion makes women sigh and men groan with envy. "Masculinity" has almost as many definitions as there are languages, and at last count there were 1,000 living languages being bandied about the globe. That favorite Hollywood film shot of the hirsute hero baring his manly chest would cause no stir, for example, among the women of Bali. There the admired male is short, wiry and so hairless that he can remove his few chin whiskers with a tweezer. The same type spells mas- culinity throughout much of the Orient. Even the fierce redskin warrior, a man's man if there ever was one, could find no firewater powerful enough to "put hair on his chest." Can a he-man be lacking not only in muscle development but in aggressiveness and the competitive instinct? Is it manly to be timid, gentle, submissive, to cod- dle your children to the point of feeding them mouthful by mouthful? The Arapesh of New Guinea say yes: this is their definition of the perfect man and the good citizen. Curiously enough, it is also their ideal of womanhood. A man and his mate have almost identical personalities and duties in this small re- mote tribe. Basic to Western notions of masculinity is the image of the husband as "a good provider," but among many peoples it is the wife who brings home the bacon. Gypsy women tell fortunes and sell trinkets while their men sit in coffee- houses. Among the fierce Mundugumor, neighbors of the Arapesh, women farm the land while their he-men plot raids on nearby settlements. In still another New Guinea tribe, the Tchambuli, men wear elaborate orna- ments, carve the ritual masks and dress the ceremonial dolls. When they are not busy with artistic matters, they're doing the family shopping. The women, mean- while, are managing all the practical af- fairs of the tribe. I at muls Prefer Leap Year Approach But surely the man is everywhere the aggressor in courtship? Not so. Though the African Zulus are very strict on this point, insisting on the man's privilege of pursuit (and no time off for Gander Weekend), the South Sea Iatmuls take a different approach. The men know that if they just sit back and wait, some girl will send a love token with a message expressing the Iatmul equivalent of "Are you a man or a mouse?" Other cherished cliches of masculinity are refuted even closer to home. The French general's kiss on the war hero's cheek is only the best-known example of the fact that in Latin countries it's considered routine for men to greet each other affectionately. It's also perfectly natural for a man to show strong emo- tion, even to shed tears. And Latin males from Mark Antony to Napoleon to many present day conquerors have perfumed themselves without being thought sissified the local belles. Almost everywhere in the world, though, a man will put up a fight to protect his prerogatives from female en- croachment. In many primitive tribes, men have secret societies to which no woman may ever be admitted; the eaves- Jropping female risks death if caught. Though less extreme in their approach, American men have always insisted on a few sacred masculine preserves. In Grandpa's day it was the barbershop and (quite often) the corner saloon. Now that women are borrowing male fashions, entering professions once reserved for men, and are getting hubby to help with the housework, the struggle is tougher, but it's still going on. Psychologists suggest that many men enjoy cigars just because women hate their rank aroma. Aside from its low price, one of the big factors in beer's popularity is its tradition of being a man's drink. Hopping on the band-wagon, cigarette manufacturers are advertising masculine smokes. But they're cautious: one leading brand had billed itself as "a cigarette for men that women like." OSU Finds Students Well- Acquainted With "Origin of Species' 1 Ohio State University's Lantern polled students on their knowledge of the class- ics. Of the books from a list compiled from suggestions of professors in five fields, it was found that the one book tvith which almost all were familiar was Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species. Lantern writer Bram Dijkstra cited this as " a striking example of twen- tieth century emphasis on scientific edu- cation." Few had read French and Span- ish masterpieces, indicating, Dijkstra felt, that "although isolationism may have left the United States political scene, it still reigns unshaken in the field of edu- cation. One conclusion indicated by the poll s that almost all knowledge the average student has about the classic stems from being confronted with them in the class- room — more specifically, in college. Many OSU students requested copies of the poll questionnaire because it made a good reading list. (ACP) Letters Continued from page 2 by conversation; and louder playing seems to stimulate louder conversation. The purpose of the prelude is to set a mood for the worship that is to follow. It is not merely entertainment. . . . Another point of the service which could be far more meaningful is that immediately following the benediction. A few moments of quiet, prayerful med- itation while the choir recesses would be well spent and would be a fitting close to a service of worship. The chapel service, if it is not to be a worshipful, meaningful experience, does not necessarily center only upon the speaker as strongly as is often thought. It does center heavily upon a commu- nity of respectful, worshipping, meditat- ing students, eagerly and sincerely seek- ing spiritual guidance and growth for their lives. Sincerely, PIERCE GETZ Probably the most widely accepted symbol of masculinity is the pair of pants. Since the 16th century, when men began to adopt trousers, "wearing the pants around the house" has clearly been Father's prerogative. (Before that time, when male fashions made a great display of male legs, folks probably spoke of "wearing the tights around the house.") Comfortably and stylishly attired in trousers that are unmistakably male in name as well as in tailoring, the Ameri- can man can hardly be blamed for his smug cracks to the effect that women shouldn't wear slacks unless "the end justifies the jeans." Arabs believe "it is written" that men are the superior sex. In parts of old Japan, a male infant could throw tan- trums all day without fear of being clob- bered by the females of the household. Despite his tiny size he was feared and respected simply because he was a male child. But it's among the Ashanti of Africa that men are really men (though wo- men are not necessarily glad of it.) Among the 12 offenses that call for the death penalty in Ashanti law (committing murder and cursing the chief are both first-degree felonies) is the unspeakable crime committed by any woman who calls a man a fool! "Collage" Is In The Library La Vie CoUegienne, Thursday, November 10, 1960 PAGE FIVE Record Puzzle Trips Up Entrants; Offer Soviet Examination Question La Vie received four correct solutions to last week's puzzler, the Tug-of-War. These were submitted by Joseph Clark, Bruce Docherty, James Gruber and Mike Lenker. Only Clark and Lenker, however, figured out that the record needle travels only three and one-quarter inches, from the rim of the record to the edge of the center label. The Tug solution is as follows, from strongest to weakest: Frank, Bob, Fred and Jim. The original problem can be reduced to the following two equalities and one inequality, using the boys' initials, with F for Frank and Fr for Fred. B is stronger than Fr plus /. F plus Fr are stronger than J plus B. B plus Fr equals F plus J. This last statement, the equality, can be solved for Fr, which means that Fred's strength equals that of Jim's plus Frank's minus Bob's. By substituting this for Fred in the second equation above, Frank is proved stronger than Bob, who is stronger than the other two. In the equality, since we know that Bob is weaker than Frank, then Fred must be stronger than Jim. Russian Entrance Exam The following question appears on an entrance exam for nontechnical Soviet college students. There is no trick to it; it simply tests basic knowledge of science. There are two steel bars clinging side by side, apparently identical. One is sim- ply soft steel, but the other is a powerful bar magnet. The problem is to deter- mine which is which, using no other equipment or material. They may be pulled apart but can be placed in another position only once before an answer is given. What is the procedure? Entries should be placed in the La Vie mailbox in the Student Personnel Office before November 22. Orchestra Continued from page 1 specialist in Chopin music. Last sum- mer, Miss Pickwell attended a piano workshop at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, where she also took lessons with Robert Goldsand. New Physics Group Is Memter Of AIP The Physics Club organized recently on the Lebanon Valley campus is a stu- dent section of the American Institute of Physics. The purpose of the club is to encourage the study of physics and to assist student physicists. Joseph Fox was elected president and Amos Hollinger vice president. John Bowman will serve as secretary-treasurer, while Mr. J. Robert O'Donnell will act as faculty adviser. The founding of this student section of the AIP was observed with a banquet held at the Officers' Club of the Indiantown Gap Military Reser- vation Friday, November 4, at 6:30 p.m. The featured speaker of the evening was Dr. Walter Bunderman, a science teacher at John Harris High School, Harrisburg. Membership in the club is open to all physics majors and to any college stu- dents who have indicated an interest in the field of physics by registering for courses in the physics department. 10 Years Ago In La Vie J^ a \ Jazzmen Play At Frammis Captain Robert B. Donovan, Uni- ted States Air Force Officer Personnel Selection Officer for central and northeastern Pennsylvania, will be at Lebanon Valley College on Wednes- day, November 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., to interview male and fe- male college seniors interested in the Air Force's Officer Training School Program.

Miller assumed the highest office at Lebanon Valley on a permanent basis. In the November 16 issue of La Vie, it was announced that ten members of the senior class had been accepted by Who's Who Among Stu- dents in American Colleges and Univer- sities. Philo and Clio presented a "serious drama" in Engle Hall the evening after the paper came out. The play was en- titled "Kind Lady," by Edward Cho- dorov. The Knights of the Valley came into existence in 1950. Their aims and pur- poses, as reported in La Vie, were to "inspire loyalty to the ideals and tradi- tions of Lebanon Valley College, to en- courage activites — social, forensic, ath- letic, and especially scholastic." "Jazz Engle II" was reviewed, having been presented the preceding Friday night. The staff of the paper as listed on the mast included a total of three "con- servatory editors." Last but not least, the football team was preparing for what they expected would be a tough game with Scranton. And an advertisement for Hot Dog Frank's listed his food as "nothin' but the best." Campus Elects Nixon During Straw Election The Political Science Club invited stu- dents, faculty and administrative em- ployees of Lebanon Valley College to vote in a straw presidential election Thursday, November 3. 71 percent of the group voted, giving the Nixon-Lodge ticket a three to one vic- tory over the Kennedy-Johnson ticket. Nixon had 408 votes or 75% of all votes cast. 134 votes or 24% of the votes went to Kennedy. The other one per cent of the voters exercised the write-in vote. The purpose of the election was to actively promote bi-partisan discussions on the election. According to the rules of the balloting, each voter was entitled to only one vote and no one had to reg- ister in advance; but student watchers kept a record of all voters in a procedure similar to that employed in the regular election.

Ne wall Writes Article For London Journal The October issue of Opera, a London cultural journal, contains Mr. Robert Newall's contribution, "A Tribute to Lawrence Tibbett." Newall, who joined the faculty this fall, is an assistant professor in the de- partment of English, and a writer for a number of publications. He refers to the late singer as "one of the finest American baritones . . . the colleague and predecessor of Leonard Warren ... for a score of years the reign- ing baritone at the Metropolitan." He mentions Tibbett's catapult to fame as Ford in "Falstaff ," but points out that the magnificent talent displayed there was sometimes prostituted when Law- rence agreed to perform in lesser shows, for example, the "Hit Parade," singing music unworthy of his ability. Nevertheless, Tibbett is highly praised by Newall for his enormous contribution to great music; among the concluding statements of the "Tribute" is a tone of strong admiration for "a man who has given us such a galaxy of indelible op- eratic portraits and who has given so un- stintingly of that incomparable voice." Survey Finds 6,045 Living IVC Alumni When students leave LVC, their affili- ation with the college does not end. The institution concerns itself with following alumni activities and keeping complete records of former students. Mrs. P. Rodney Kreider, alumni secre- tary, recently conducted a survey among the alumni and gleaned the following vital statistics. The total number of living alumni is 6,045; of these, 4,082 received diplomas. Anyone who attends for a minimum of two full semesters is considered an alum- nus. How many campus romances at LVC actually lead to the altar? The survey shows that 1,224 people found then- mates at their alma mater. From the 612 families established in this way have come 130 children who have graduated from the college. 41 per cent of alumni have obtained advanced degrees, and 1,687 have pur- sued graduate study in professional fields. Deceased alumni number 722, and the addresses of only 261 are currently un- known. r Application Blank CAMPUS ART EXHIBIT 1 Artist Medium (oils, pastels, etc.) Number of Entries Titles (if any) This completed form may be placed in the La Vie mailbox in the student per- sonnel office or submitted directly to Gail Bull.

He's uncouth, he's illiterate, he's completely irre- sponsible. His tabic manners are frightful. His talk is pure gibberish. And he thinks with the mind of a one-year-old. Let's face it, he's a mess. Yet in thirty-five short years this extremely un- promising individual could become the President of the United States. Meanwhile, somebody's going to have to shape him up. A lot of people will share this monumental task. His parents. His playmates. His teachers. All of them must help him realize, among other things, that if he hopes to continue his education, only hard work and good marks will qualify him for college train- ing. Probably the most awesome responsibility of all will fall to the college he chooses at the age of eighteen. For it is in college that he must mature from a carefree youth to a responsible, thinking man. Let's pray that he is admitted to one of the finest universities in the land. What are his chances? Unfortunately, not too good. Many of our colleges are overcrowded today. In ten years applications are expected to double. By 1970, many potential presidents may be turned away at the gates. Others may suffer from mediocre instruction. For in the face of this impending crisis, low salaries are forc- ing gifted teachers to leave the campus for better paying jobs elsewhere. We must reverse this disastrous trend. Won't you do your part? Support the college of your choice now! Help it to expand its facilities and pay teach- ers the salaries they deserve. Not just our choice of President, but our whole future as a nation may depend on it. Ifs important for you to know what the impending college crisis means to you.

Thursday, December 1, 1960 An Editorial An Appeal To The Faculty Occasionally a professor unwittingly creates a situation in one of his courses which not only results in an inaccurate picture of the students' progress, but also causes friction among the students themselves. This occurs when a professor gives the same exam or exams two years in a row. Consider the following hypothetical situation. A test is announced in a senior class course, and one or two students know where they may obtain copies of last year's exam. On the supposition that the prof may pass out a carbon copy of last year's test (and such suppositions are rarely fabricated without foundation), they and a select few of their friends study the test and memorize the answers verbatim. The day of the test arrives, and the questions are quite difficult, even for those students who have studied their texts and lecture notes. But a certain eight or ten students turn in near-perfect papers. When the grades are curved, these stu- dents rank high, and the rest of the class suffers by comparison. Ill feeling results among the class members themselves when they discover that certain of their fellows hoarded copies of the previous test. Yet few would share the information contained in such an exam with those against whom they will be competing. It is often the case that students who cheat in this manner (and dishonesty is very definitely involved) are not the ones who know the material anyway. But when a well-studied individual misses even one or two questions, his grade is over- shadowed (an J out-curved) by the perfection of his rival's work. It is hard to believe that a professor does not become suspicious when a stu- dent who never volunteers in class and can never answer a question orally turns in a near-perfect examination. If all students were to have access to previous tests, they would all have an equal opportunity to succeed. But when a prof gives the same test twice in a row, students who study are cheated out of their rightful credit by those who hoard ill-gotten answers for themselves. It may be a little more work for a prof to compile a new set of tests each year. Nevertheless, unless they remove all copies of their tests from circulation each year, an unfortunately inaccurate appraisal of each individual's accomplishments will result. (PHR) "Collage" Requests Student Response The magazine Collage has launched its first international survey of college stu- dents. Campuses from Hawaii to Canada are now being polled through mailed questionnaires with the help of Col- lage student correspondents at more than 70 schools. These survey forms contain questions concerning preferences in music, art, lit- erature, fashions, cosmetics and other consumer commodities. The results of this study will be made available to in- terested student, government and busi- ness organizations early in 1961. Since there are no student correspond- ents on this campus as yet, copies of this questionnaire may be obtained from the editors of this paper or directly from Collage, 1822 North Orleans Street, Chi- cago 14, Illinois. Deadline for the re- ceipt of these forms is December 31. Students who fill out and return these survey sheets will receive free of charge an LP recording of one of the maga- zine's new college radio programs, or a sample copy of Collage if they are un- familiar with it, or both if supplies last. The first two issues of Collage are presently available in the Gossard Mem- orial Library. Dean Breidenstine Addresses Faculty Dr. A. G. Breidenstine, dean of in- struction at Millersville State College, addressed the faculty of Lebanon Valley, Monday evening, November 28. Following his talk entitled "Profes- sional Responsibilities and Ethics," the meeting was opened for discussion. A graduate of Elizabethtown College with a master's degree from Temple Uni- versity, Dr. Breidenstine has been active in educational work in Central Pennsyl- vania since 1925. Before becoming dean of instruction at Millersville in 1955, Dr. Breidenstine served as dean of Franklin and Mar- shall College. Dr. Breidenstine is active in Phi Delta Kappa, Junior College Council, PSEA and NEA, and in the Middle States Association of Colleges and Universi- ties. Math Professors Travel To Swarthmore Meeting Dr. Barnard Bissinger, Mr. Paul Hen- ning and Mr. Robert Wagner attended the leeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania sec- ion of the Mathematical Association of America at Swarthmore College, Satur- day, November 26. All three men are members of the .ssociation. Dr. Bissinger was moderator for an afternoon panel discussion on professional standards for teachers. For he past year Dr. Bissinger has been a nember of the Association's committee on professional standards, concerned with setting requirements for adequate edu- cational background of prospective high school and college teachers of mathe- matics. Dr. Bissinger and the other committee members were chosen from institutions of higher education which were deemed outstanding with regard to modernized curricula in mathematics. Students To Compete for LV Scholarships Lebanon Valley College will hold its nnual competitive scholarship examina- tions Saturday, December 10, 1960. Three full-tuition scholarships of $1800 each to be distributed over a per- iod of two years; and eight half-tuition scholarships of $900 each distributed in the same way as the full-tuition ones will be offered. Mr. D. Clark Carmean, director of admissions, pointed out that high school seniors in the upper third of their classes are eligible to take the exami- nations. All students will take a pre- scribed test and an elective test in one of the following thirteen areas: biology, chemistry, English, French, German, his- tory, Latin, mathematics, music, physics, political science, sociology or Spanish. The scholarships can be applied to study toward any one of the five degrees the college offers: bachelor of arts, bach- elor of science, bachelor of science in chemistry, bachelor of science in nurs- ing and bachelor of science in medical technology. Music Department To Sponsor Annual Formal Dinner Dance Ex-Governor Duff establishes Award Lebanon Valley College has establish- ed the Governor James H. Duff Award with an unrestricted gift from the former Governor and Senator of Pennsylvania. The award, consisting of a certificate and a monetary prize derived from in- vested funds, will be granted annually to a college senior who by participation in campus government or by debate demon- strates an interest in government service. President Miller said that this is the first gift to be granted by Governor Duff to a college within the state and that it was given in a strictly non-partisan man- ner. "Governor Duff," Dr. Miller said, 'wishes this award to promote interest in state government among the students." "Governor Duff's career was influenced while he was a student at Princeton Uni- versity through the winning of a debat- ing medal. When he won that medal, he was still trying to decide whether to study medicine or to choose some other career. However, upon winning the de- bate (on the subject of government) and the medal, he was so impressed with the many intriguing facets of government that he decided to make law his career." Governor Duff was awarded an hon- orary Doctor of Laws degree from Leba- non Valley in 1950. Since his retirement from public life, he has been practicing law in Washington and in western Penn- sylvania. Governor Duff was represented at the presentation of the gift in Dr. Miller's office by three alumni of the college. They were Mrs. Sarah Leffler, home and school visitor from the Lebanon City School District; Mr. Robert A. Nichols, secretary of the Lebanon City School Board and past president of the Lebanon Valley Alumni Association; and Mr. Will- iam E. Gollam of the Lebanon Daily News editorial staff. Chem Representatives Attend District Meeting Five students and four faculty mem- bers of the chemistry department attend- ed the meeting of the Southeastern Sec- tion of the American Chemical Society Thursday, November 17, at the Colonial Country Club, near Linglestown. Dr. Eddy. Dr. Robert E. Griswold, Dr. Henry B. Hollinger, and Dr. Karl L. Lockwood were the faculty members who attended the conference. Representing the students at this meeting were Rich- ard Burkholder, De:m Flinchbaugh, Rob- ert Habig, Carl Jarboe and Roger Mi- chael. Dramatic Fraternity Discusses Activities The Rho Eta Cast of Alpha Psi Ome- ga, national honorary dramatic frater- nity, discussed the theatrical activities of LVC at the semi-annual meeting on No- vember 15. The members, after voting in favor of minor changes in the cast constitution, investigated various suggestions for the three-act play or musical which Wig and Buckle plans to put before the footlights next spring. The group is now choosing a flower to be adopted as the symbol of the LVC cast. The students wish to extend their best wishes to Mrs. Tredick during her recov- ery. It is hoped that she can return to her position as head nurse very soon. The Lebanon Valley music department will hold its annual formal dinner and dance at the Palmyra Legion Friday, December 9. from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. Music for the affair will be provided by Donald Trostle and his orchestra. This annual event, one of the few for- mal dances to be sponsored by an LVC organization, was planned by a commit- tee headed by Joan Mumper, a senior in the music department. To help offset the costs involved, a donation of $5.00 is requested of each couple. Following the dinner, the orchestra of Don Trostle, a graduate of Lebanon Valley, will provide entertainment and music for dancing. This dinner dance is open to all music education majors and minors and their guests. Chorus To Present ChristmasProgram The College chorus will present a community Christmas program, Decem- ber 13, in Engle Hall. The chorus will be under the direction of Mr. Pierce Getz. David Poff, a senior in the department of music, will accom- pany the group. Christmas Oratorio by Carmille Saint Saens, Our Father by Alexander Gretch- aninoff, and O Come, Let Us Worship and Glory Be To God, by Sergei Rach- maninoff, are among the numbers to be sung by the chorus. The department of music and the local ministerium are sponso ing this ac- tivity. Kilmoyer Explains Skill Of Coding By Matrices Members of the mathematics club heard Robert Kilmoyer, a senior math major, explain a simplified but typical version of the use of matrices in the manufacture of a "secret veil" for mes- sages. His talk, given at the c'.ub's latest meeting, was based on a method first founded by the famous cryptographer, Hill, who made vital use of it in the service of our country. Much of the course content of Math 10 was shown to be of practical value in coding and decoding. Kilmoyer further referred to a recent paper in the "Mathe- matics Teacher" which he had read in conjunction with his work in the honors program. He said that the method of using matrices to code messages, though simple in application, has proven to be one of the toughest coding systems to crack. m LVC Music Students To Host State Convention The annual convention of the Penn- sylvania Music Educators' Association in Harrisburg began today and will contin- ue Friday and Saturday. Fifty-six of Lebanon Valley College's juniors and seniors will represent the school at Friday's events. A student chapter will be held at noon Friday. The luncheon is sponsored by the Music Educator's National Confer- ence, with chapter No. 146, the Lebanon Valley chapter, as host. H. William Nix- on will act as chairman and toastmas- ter of the event. The program will con- sist of a duet by Sandra Stetler and Kenneth Hayes, and a panel discussion entitled the "Status of Music Educa- tion." One of the main highlights of the day's program is the performance of the Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir and Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. James Thurmond. The concert will be held in the Forum of the education building at 8 p.m. Annual Science Program Will Bring 175 To LVC The sixth annual Science for a Day Program sponsored by the science divi- sion of Lebanon Valley College will be held at the college Saturday, December 10. Mr. O. P. Bollinger of the biology department will serve as co-ordinator of the affair. Approximately 175 high school sci- ence teachers and students are expected to participate in the program. Prelimin- ary remarks will be given by Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the college, and Dr. Jacob Rhodes, chairman of the depart- ment of physics, following which the visiting students will take part in science projects supervised by instructors from the college's science division and college students. The projects have been pro- grammed by scientific discipline accord- ing to the special interests of the partici- pants. High school students have been asked 10 pre-register through their teachers for one of the projects. There will be ten entries in biology, twelve in chemistry, ;en in mathematics and fourteen in phy- sics from which to choose. While the visiting students are occu- pied with the projects, their instructors vill gather for a mutual exchange of ideas and suggested improvements for leaching the sciences in high schools. The afternoon will be devoted to a program involving both the participants in Science for a Day and the high school students who will be on campus for the mnual scholarship examinations. As in previous years, Science for a Day is made possible through a grant from the E. I. duPont de Nemours Company. The purpose of this program is to encourage qualified and interested young people to prepare themselves for professional ser- vice in one of the many science areas. Delta Lambda Sigma Initiates Fall Pledges Delphian inducted 45 new girls into its membership, November 19, in the College Lounge. During the informal initiation pro- gram the girls were required to dress as lambs to represent the club's mascot. The formal initiation program, under the direction of Brenda Lidle and Peggy Bean, took place in the College Lounge preceding the Inter-Society Dance.

PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 1, 1960 This Is Progr ess — II Bedtime Story Once upon a time many men gathered together and decided to form a coun- try where everyone would have equal opportunity. These men had many different skills, and each one gave of his services so that the others might benefit. They shared their responsibilities and worked side by side and their country grew. As their new nation expanded, some men became merchants, some farmers, some blacksmiths. And later, as more and more people populated the land, some were workers and some were supervisors of workers. But while there was "man- agement" and "labor," all still maintained the ideals of their forefathers. But soon someone in management deeded that they could make more money by making the workers work harder for the same pay. And someone in labor decided that shorter hours and more pay would be desirable. So management saved money by failing to provide proper working conditions and by requiring greater toil; and labor banded toge :.er into pressure groups, to force management to give in to their needs and demands. And there were those in thai country who saw the injustices and dishonesty which lurked in the factories of their land. And they talked and they wrote and they made the facts known to their fellows. Then it was that courageous men in the government of that nation decided to end the strife and friction between the two opposing sides. And they passed laws; and they said, "you shall provide proper working con- ditions for your laborers; you shall have them work no longer than a certain num- ber of hours per week; your workers shall in return give of their labor in prescribed manners, and shall not cease their labor without due grievance. Violation of these rules will result in punishment." And the men of the land obeyed the laws, most of the time. But management did not provide for its workers because it felt a sense of responsibility; nor did the workers do their jobs for the sake of those who benefitted from them. They simply did as they were told, as long as government watched over them. For government had placed a fence around them, Lke animals, and threatened them with punishment if they dared try to climb out. And the people of that country no longer felt responsibility for each other's welfare. They followed the rules because they had to, not because they had an innate sen->e of goodness and justice. Once upon a time men formed a country in which all men worked together for the good of them all, as individuals and as interdependent citizens of one nation. And these men grew up into children, caring only for their personal welfare, and poppa government watches out for them all, and keeps them away from each other's throats. America needs a central government with the power to control its people like puppets on a string. America needs a father to tell its people just what to do. All this is necessary, because Americans have forgotten how to take care of them- selves. They can't be bothered learning a sense of responsibility. They need some- one to take care of them. (PHR) As Lambs Unto Slaughter .... "An act committed under compulsion ... is neither praiseworthy nor repre- hensible. To be one or the other it must be voluntary." The above Aristotelian thought presupposes that man, as a thinking being, possesses the power of making decisions for himself for which he is to some extent responsible. We could expect such a view from Aristotle, champion of the individual and proponent of a state which exists as the servant of individuals. Mod- ern political thinkers, however, see things differently. It is now fashionable to believe that man exists as a cog in the great wheel of State. We have lost faith in ourselves and with the aid of some psychological and political yoga, we are seeking absorption in a new American Nirvana. Ameri- cans have been submitting to a series of governmental changes which relieve them more and more of direct responsibility in government and in their personal lives. Those who seek power are willing to think for the masses, and win votes by telling their audiences so. Who has convinced the people that their elected representa- tives are all-wise benefactors? Who has persuaded the majority of their ineptitude? The theory that government should plan for the economy, the distribution of wealth, health, education and welfare takes for granted that government will be pure — a dangerous assumption. Our national attitude is becoming such that we are letting ourselves wide open for propaganda of power-seekers who win elections by noble promises and then work to mold men to fit the mold of the State. Under a Welfare State, life is easier for people; charity is compulsory. The swaddling clothes of security make adventure unnecessary. Drudgery may be gone, but so is challenge and healthy strife. Eventually we will be steeped in equality to the point of absorption — truly humane, truly benevolent, truly mediocre. The law compels us — we are amoral creatures at its mercy. A feeling of impotence in the face of national and world problems is already afield, and this helplessness is fostered by more than the lamented electoral college, more than domineering labor leadership, more than increased government plan- ning. People feel that they have an uncertain and insecure place in a complex society. The function of a government should be protection, as in the control of fraud, exploitation, or unscrupulousness on the part of individuals or nations. It has no right to order in any other way the personal lives of its citizenry, and the people should not vote it this right. For lack of self-trust and hunger for security, however, they do it. One is further led to believe they do it out of pure laziness. The drive for security is bound to be the downfall of Americans, individually and as a nation. The frontier offered many risks — a man played many roles, and nonchalantly won and lost fortunes. He believed that there were always new opportunities: "If at first you don't succeed, try again," or "Go West, young man!" The modern paraphrase would be, "If at first you don't succeed, get a government handout." Unfortunately the spirit of adventure seems to have died with the covered wagon. We are asking to be told how much money we should have, what crops we should grow, how our funds are to be spent. We are asking to be obliged to ac- cept the inevitable directives accompanying federal "aid" to schools (also used as bribes for integration and other government purposes). We are gradually building a society like the one from which our forefathers escaped to the New World. We are asking to be told just how we should pursue happiness. (JMK) Visit The Campus Art Exhibit In The Audio- Visual Aids Room Letters to La Vie Questions Faculty Humor To the Editors of La Vie: Why is it that many professors, when trying to introduce humor into their lec- tures, often resort to the use of off-color stories? Is it because the students are incap- able of understanding or enjoying a • clean" joke? Or could this be the pro- fessors' method of coming to the stu- dents as equals? This unfortunate situation does not reflect favorably upon people who are supposed to be very intelligent and in a position to teach and influence others. DISGUSTED Takes Pride In LVC To the Editors of La Vie: I wish to take this opportunity to ex- press in print my pride in one of our fine social organizations. They are doing a wonderful job of teaching their pledges the ways of college life. What better way is there to make men out of the fledglings than to expose them to the virile, masculine, collegiate atmosphere of a beer party? Some people really know how to live. They sit around feasting on the kiss of the hops while their eyes wander lewdly over a flickering screen before them. Some people call such movies depravity, but this is life, this is college, this is manly! It's also somewhat disgusting that col- lege men have to get their kicks this way. NAME WITHHELD ON REQUEST Stand Up and Be Counted To the Editors of La Vie: On Tuesday I attended chapel; I do not mind going to chapel even though it is forced upon us. I believe that even adults need a certain amount of restric- tions, rules and regulations placed upon them. 1 do not believe, however, that adults need to be told where to sit in a church. I go to church regularly and I have never once wandered through the building seeking a place to sit. I, like most normal people, quietly sit down where I see an available spot. I ai ree with Mr. Getz that we need to have more reverence in our approach to our chapol services. This is something .Mich student must consider a personal responsibility as an adult. If one does not want to participate actively in a serv- ice of worship, the least he can do is be quiet so the rest of us may benefit from the service. However, I do not feel we need to be treated like a bunch of Mickey Mouse puppets. Our country's democracy is becoming socialistic; this is obvious. But here at our college I want to act like an adult and be treated like one. Maybe if we had more assurance that we are consid- ers! adults, we would take it more seri- ously. We have dining hall numbers, linen numbers, fire drill numbers: maybe if we're lucky we can avoid having a num- ber for chapel. Sincerely. JAN HAMMERSCHMIDT Toward Equal Opportunity The social societies at LVC have long been an effective means of bringing to- gether students from all departments in a social situation. A member of one of these groups meets a variety of people of numerous interests, talents and abilities, and there is every reason to believe that this kind of association has brought to the fore previously undiscovered social competency in many personalities. The value of participation in the meetings, projects, parties and dances of the societies is evident whenever a student (who obviously would never have been con- sidered for a selective sorority or fraternity) makes good. Heretofore these things have been recognized and respected by LVC's social clubs. First impressions were recognized for the shallow generalizations that they are. The unwieldiness of the resulting large societies was considered secondary to the importance of serving the social needs of the individual. Recently, however, the ponderous rolls of these organizations have overwhelmed those who are attempting to coordinate the activities of the several societies. Selectivity, faculty-approved, has been adopted by the three men's groups as a solution to the problem. Organizations feel that close relationships between mem- bers as well as attempted club endeavors are ineffectual if the membership is not limited. They find it desirable to eliminate "dead wood." Certainly anyone who has ever tried to lead an organization can sympathize with this difficulty. Selectivity of various kinds is inescapable for the sake of expediency; colleges set a certain standard for their incoming students, and departmental and interest groups, honorary and otherwise, require specific qualification for their inductees. However, these requirements are based on ability and interest, likewise participa- tion. The realm of social life is another matter. While everyone may not be able to qualify for Tri-Beta, Pi Gamma Mu, Green Blotter, Sinfonia, the Concert Choir or the French Club, each person should at least be permitted to choose the social life which appeals to him and to which he may contribute more than anyone could guess during Rush Week. Could not the societies regulate membership by dropping those who do not attend a required number of meetings or who do not serve on a given number of committees? Clubs who hand-pick their pledges fall prey to charges having to do with the undemocratic, morally corrupting and socially stratifying characteristics of such groups. One can cite examples where selective societies have fostered false values of personality and ethiCs. A definite inequality of social opportunity prevails under a policy of selectivity. It is unfortunate that there is no college rule forbidding discriminatory prac- tices by the societies, in order that every student who so desires may have the right to develop his personality in the social atmosphere of his choice. (JMK) Suggests Prom Solution To the Editors of La Vie: I should certainly hesitate to say that to have a name band on campus is the remedy for our suitcase college and our ticket to rank in prestige among other colleges. Rather let us be concerned with a more mature consideration having to do with school spirit on our own cam- pus. Let this idea of togetherness guide our feelings, thoughts and actions con- cerning decision about our own school. I personally am in favor of having a name band on our campus so long as it is financially feasible. I should like us to see an additional step forward to the state of a mature college atmosphere, that is, an end to this high school falde- ral of wearing formals, tuxedos and cor- sages. This is so much superficiality which means nothing other than added expense. Why not cut out the frills — suits instead of tuxes, cocktail dresses instead of formals, no flowers — dress comfortably, and pay more to have a really good band? This, I believe, is one way to show ourselves that we can be grown-up college students. TIRED OF FALSE VALUES Defends Economic Practices Mr. Riddle: 1 wish to take issue with you on sev- eral points in your editorial in the No- vember 10th edition of La Vie. I must assume that your reference to middle-class people in a middle-class town living in a middle-class home is made to upper-middle-class people. I hardly think devoting one's entire pay- check to the budget just to make ends meet can be termed living in the lap of luxury. I'm not aware of a multitude of socialistic benefits provided for the aver- age working man by the federal govern- ment. If public schools and public high- ways are provisions of a socialis ic gov- ernment, either state or federal, then I'm all for it. An accurate definition of socialism re- fers to government control of the means of production of a state. I don't believe such a system has yet been advocated by any major political party desirous of gaining control of the government. Yes, life in America does come on the installment plan. How else is a man with an income of five or six thousand dollars able to buy a car that costs three thousand, a home for an average family that costs fifteen or twenty thousand, and still provide adequate food and clothing for himself and his family? No, money is not hard to come by if a man wants to put himself in debt to those people who are willing "to look out for his in- tersts." Having "someone" tell you not to work for three or four weeks is not quite the whole story of how a strike comes about. No union strikes without first taking a strike vote to gain the necessary ap- proval of the majority of its members, and it must give the company at least thirty days' notice of its intentions be- fore it strikes. Nor do I consider it just to say someone else got that raise for him when he sacrificed three or four weeks' wages while he was striking and maintaining picket lines to prevent com- pany "scabs" from usurping his job in the interim. In regard to the strike against the Pennsylvania Railroad, I believe the un- ion's grievance in this instance was not one of wages but rather was one of job security. It is interesting to note that this industry that has been fighting for its life in competition with trucking lines and airlines and has been aided considerably in its battle by financial aid from the same "socialistic" government you attack so hotly. Finds School Aid Justified I must admit to some confusion on my part in understanding just what you mean by "gifts which come out of every- one's pocket" that are given to college students.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 1, 1960 PAGE THREE Dutch Flier by Chip Burkhardt At the completion of a very successful season, the Flying Dutchmen have compiled some impressive figures. Vern Magnuson, on the strength of his 26-point burst against PMC, won the Northern Division Middle Atlantic Conference scoring championship with 56 points. He was second in yards gained on the ground (598) and finished with an average of 4.9 yards gained per carry. Another standout for the Valley was Les Holstein. Les was third in the con- ference in rushing with 446 yards gained and a 4.4 rushing average. He also finished fifth in scoring with a total of 36 points. Holstein and Magnuson com- bined their efforts for a total of 1044 yards gained and 92 points scored. Other Dutchmen who were high in the standings were ends Hi Fitzgerald and Bruce Slatcher and frosh quarterback Wes MacMillan. Fitzgerald was sixth in pass receiving with 12 receptions and 133 yards gained. Slatcher finished eleventh with seven catches and 101 yards gained. MacMillan was third in passing with 29 completions in 63 attempts and 258 yards gained. Coupling these statistics with a 7-2 season record results in a f ne season for Lebanon Valley.

Letters Continued from page 2 hardly consider it a gift to exchange three years in the service for $160 a month to support yourself, a wife and child, and still pay tuition and other school costs. Without the Bill, many men would find financing a college edu- cation truly difficult, if not impossible. If you mean federal aid to land-grant colleges, I don't consider money wrong- ly-used when it lessens the tuition and living expenses of college so that not-so- wealthy people can have the benefit of higher education. Doubling the cost of an education at a land-grant college would defeat the original purpose of these institutions; that is, providing inex- pensive higher learning. Consider the effect on your own tuition at LVC if the friends and alumni of the college with- drew their financial support. At the present time, federal loans are available to college students at low inter- est rates. The loans may be paid back by the student beginning as late as two years after graduation, and payments may extend over as long a period of lime as ten years. Your apparent belief that "some day our progressive government will take everyone's money and put it in a great Hg bowl," to be passed out in equal shares, smacks of the Marxist theory of everyone working according to his ability and receiving according to his need. I can not believe that any system approxi- mating this will ever come about in America so long as Americans have any initiative whatsoever. The obvious way to avoid communism is to prevent the conditions that breed it. Keeping money in the hands of the consumer, whether by insuring adequate wages, social se- curity, or federal relief, is the best way to guarantee the existence of free enter- prise. Adequate housing, guaranteed civil rights, free public schools, financial aid to higher education, government regula- tory agencies to prevent private enter- prise from throttling the consumer — all are means of alleviating the hot-beds of radicalism that breed communism. A progressive government that provides these measures and looks ahead to the problems it will have to face in the fu- ture is to be much preferred to an ex- treme form of conservatism that looks back with nostalgia to the "good ol' days" when the economic frontier was booming, population figures were not astronomical, and Karl Marx was an un- known German malcontent. It is my firm belief that Senator Goldwater could take some lessons from the new generation of progressives, as could his loyal follow- ing. Sincerely, DAVID WEEKLEY Lebanon County Alumni Congregate In Library The Lebanon Valley College Alumni of Lebanon County met in the audio-visual room of the Gossard Memorial Library, November 29. The meeting consisted of the election of officers, a report on "The State of the College" by Dr. Frederic K. Miller, spe- cial entertainment by members of the student body, and a social period. Mrs. P. Rodney Kreider, alumni sec- retary of the college, and Samuel K. Clark, president of the Lebanon County Alumni Club, headed the planning com- mittee for the meeting. Flying Dutchmen Complete Finest Season In History The LV gridiron squad, under the coaching of Ellis R. McCracken, has com- pleted its most successful season in its history. A look at the record shows just how far the Flying Dutchmen have advanced since football became a popular sport at Valley. The 1900 team numbered among its opponents such schools as Harrisburg High School (33-0), Carlisle (0-34), the Pennsylvania Railroad YMCA (0-16), the Steelton and York YMCA teams (0- 26 and 10-0) and a present rival, Muh- lenberg College (36-0). Five years later, in 1905, Lebanon Val- ley spread out. It played the now power- ful Penn State team (0-23), Medico-chi (now a part of the University of Penn- sylvania; 6-0), Lafayette (0-72) and Oberlin (41-5). The season record was a poor 3-7. In 1914 the Valley gridders complied the finest record until this year's 7-2 tally. The final record stood at six wins, two losses, with a total of 234 points on our side of the ledger (as opposed to 22 for all the opposing teams). Only F and M and Carlisle defeated the Dutchmen (0-3 and 0-7 ) . Among the teams which fell Valley Cagemen Prepare For Opener With Mules The Lebanon Valley basketball team began to tune up for the hoop season with two scrimmages against Millersville State College November 22. The Dutchmen chalked up two im- pressive victories, showing fair speed, a pressing man-to-man defense and accur- ate shooting. Exceptional performances were turned in by Hank Van de Water and Art Forstater. Also seeing action was Hi Fitzgerald who just reported from football. As one of last year's standouts, he is counted on to help Van de Water in the rebound department. Tonight sees the season opener against victim to the LV squad were the Carlisle j Murdenberg ln the Lynch Memorial Reserves (56-0).

(CB) The 4-4 record of the 1922 Dutchmen included games with a powerful Penn State team (7-109), Army (0-53) and Haverford (18-14). Half of the four victories that year were at the expense of a hapless Juniata team by scores of 37-0 and 40-0. By 1930, LVC was still knocking heads with the best of them, but usually wound up on the short end of the score. The '30 team lost to such teams as Penn State (27-0). Villanova (19-0) and the Quan- tico Marines (7-0). The season record was an unimpressive 4-6. Penn State Still a Rival The 1935 team was a powerful squad. It held Penn State to a 6-12 score and defeated the Universities of Dehware and Tampa 18-0 and 6-0, the latter game played on the away field. The final record was 5-3-1. The 1940 team, despite a losing record of three and five, proved it could take on out-of-staters as they drubbed Arkan- sas A and M in a game played at Her- shey. The two other wins of the season were over Upsala (27-14) and Blue Ridge College (6-0). In 1954 the tenure of Ellis McCracken began. It wasn't what you would call a successful season at 0-7, but in the suc- ceeding years Mac built the Dutchmen to their present powerful status. The years 1954 through 1960 produced records of 0-7, 2-6-1, 1-8, 3-3, 4-3-1, 5-3 and this year's 7-2. The football past at LVC is filled with ups and downs, but throughout the years the Valley teams have shown their ability to improve themselves. Mr. McCracken's advance from 1954 through 1960 is an example of this spirit. No small part of Smith Attends Chicago Gathering Of NASM Robert W.

PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 1, 1960 La Vie Inquires A Question Of Selectivity by Connie Myers Pledges are notoriously the lowest form of animal life. Why anyone should be interested in such a low-level organism may be puzzling to many people. How- ever, to members of four campus or- ganizations the pledge is a very important being. Each fall these groups, through teas, smokers and other means try to en- tice underclassmen into membership in their circles. Traditionally at Lebanon Valley the only persuading to be done is on the part of the students considering membership in a social society. To some people this seems undesirable. The reverse method used by national fraternities and sororities seems more ap- pealing. With this method the choosing of pledges is done by the members of the organization. It is up to those desiring to join to show that they are worthy of membership. Which system is best? The candid opinions of some Lebanon Valley stu- dents show several views. Linda Bell (Delphian) : 1 think the so- cieties should choose because there are too many people in Delphian. However, if they do choose it may cause a lot of hard feelings and create societies of snobs. John Adams (Phllo): Societies should be selective to a certain degree. They should choose the best workers and those people who will be the best for the or- ganization. In choosing they should con- sider objectively the merits of pledges and not let personal opinion enter into the decision. They should strive for im- partiality when voting. Delores Koncar (Clio): Semi-selective might be a good term for a better society Have Shopper's Blues? Then Heed These Clues Wondering what to give him or her for Christmas this year? It poses quite a problem, especially with that scant col- lege budget. For him, girls, try a little feminine strategy. If you're listening to his rec- ords, query him casually about disks not in his collection. Get him to talk about his favorite author some evening when you're not too busy in the library; he may let fall a remark about the book he hasn't read. Ask his advice about what you should give your brother or father, listening for clues to his tastes. Play the game right and you should have a list as long as a little boy's letter to Santa Claus. If all methods fail, think upon some of the following: the well-dressed man is always the happiest man — make him happy by giving him one of those inex- pensive but well-received sets of cuff links and tie clasps. The small pearl tie pins, incidentally, are quite popular. Neckties are always appropriate, and fortunately for you there are so many striking patterns and colors from which to choose. Pay strict attention to the lat- est slim ties. Hints For Male Shoppers Men, please don't forget that special woman in your life who is always happy to receive a thoughtful remembrance, whether it be large or small. Girls are made of sugar and spice — sweeten them even more by choosing a gift of your favorite scent of perfume. The tiny purse sizes are just the thing for them and for your pocketbook as well. To make that "kitten" even more soft and cuddly, present her with a sweater of one of the new blends such as orlon acrylic or fur blend. If she's the more intellectual type, find out what books she hasn't read or what record she must have for her collection. The spirit of Christmas has always been one of giving. The shepherds carry- ing their newborn lambs in their arms that first Christmas gave of their pov- erty. The Magi, bearing gifts of gold, gave of their wealth. God gave Himself, and this is the greatest gift of all, for when one gives of himself he gives not only the symbol of love but love itself. (JO policy. They should not be extremely rigid in their policies. They should choose people who will take more inter- est and participate better, though. Such selectivity will help the organizations to be more active on campus. Tom Balsbaitgh (Kalo): I may sound prejudiced, but we think that getting nembers who will do our organization the most good will make us more ef- ficient and active. There is no use in carrying dead wood. We are considering second-semester pledging as well as the usual first-semester pledging. So far 1 like this year's selective plan. It has been working well because we have few but active members. Hannah Pisle (Delphian): There are advantages and disadvantages to both sides since groups can get too large. Something has to be done. Either make the societies selective (and risk hurting some people who may be left out) or form more societies. Don Winter (Philo): Societies should be selective. A minimum and a maxi- mum membership number should be established. Everyone who professes in- terest should be carefully considered as a pledge, but it is necessary — in fact im- perative, in order to avoid cumbersome size — to be a little restrictive. Sylvia Bucher (Delphian): I don't think our societies should be selective. Selective fraternities are better on a large campus where they are needed to help students get to know each other. That Is not necessary here. There is no justice to it: you can't select people on social standing. Such a policy would place a stigma on some people. It is unjust that people who entered a society when it was non-selective should decide to change the societies' pledge policy. Dean Wetzel (Kalo): Although once in a while you will miss some good men, I think a society should do some select- ing. This has to be because so many want to get in. Under a plan we are now considering those who do not pledge the first semester can be recommended for membership the second semester. Jane McCann (Clio): If societies are going to be selective, we might as well have national sororities and fraternities. BOOK REVIEW Adventurer Writes Of Easter Island Mystery by Thor Heyerdahl (Reviewed by Sandy Diener) Aku-Aku means "guardian spirit" to the natives of Easter Island in the South- west Pacific. This barren and isolated place is considered the loneliest island in the world. A curtain of mystery hangs over Easter Island, for found on its sur- face are colossal statues of long-eared men, wierd relics of a people who have vanished from the earth. When and how were these house-high, fifty-ton giants carved? How were they moved for miles without ^machinery? How were they erected? What toppled some of them over? What happened to the men who made them? These, plus many other puzzling quer- ies, are asked by the author, Thor Hey- erdahl, a man who will always be re- membered for his thrilling and danger- ous voyage on the raft Kon-Tiki. In- trigued by the mystery of the statues, Heyerdahl decided to set up an expedi- tion to explore Easter Island. Upon reaching the island he found a very small population, consisting mostly of natives, ruled by a Chilean governor, Captain Arnoldo Curti. A priest, Fa- ther Sebastian Englert, was the uncrown- ed king and the natives' best friend. After exploring part of the island, Heyerdahl and his party found that there was another secret to Easter Island. Caves were found underground which were very carefully guarded by suspicious natives. Exerting his influence, Heyer- dahl was able to examine a few of them. Revealing objects and fantastic clues to the skills and customs of the pale- skinned, red-haired, long-eared mystery' people were discovered in these strange caves. Heyerdahl writes this fascinating story with vivid detail. He presents it as a sci- entific adventure, adding human warmth, excitement and suspense. CAMPUS FLAG IS GIFT OF CONGRESSMAN The 50-star American Flag that now flies over the campus of Lebanon Valley College is the gift of the congressman of the 16th Congressional District, Mr. Walter M. Mumma. Earlier this year, Mr. Mumma had loaned to the college a flag that had flown over the Capitol in Washington until it was possible to secure the six by ten-foot banner that he presented to Valley as an outright gift. Compliments of Co-Ed Luncheonette Frank and Delia Marino Proprietors Freshman Solves Russian Problem Only one successful solution to the Russian college entrance exam question, submitted by freshman Carol Jimenez, was received by La Vie before publi- cation. The puzzle, as stated in the last issue, is as follows: There are two steel bars clinging side by side, apparently identical, One is simply soft steel; the other is a power- ful bar magnet. The problem is to de- termine which is which, using no other equipment or material. They may be pulled apart but can be placed in an- other position only once before an an- swer is given. What is the procedure? Solution: Touch the tip of one bar to the center of the other. If they cling to- gether, the one whose tip is touching is the magnet, since the greatest pull would be at the poles. If there is no attraction, then the bar whose center is touched is the magnet, since there is very little at- traction in the center.

The program was much more ambitious than last year's "Jazz Engle 6," possibly accounting for the fact that the sound was less co- hesive than in the previous concert. In addition, the program lacked variety. A single Latin American rhythm number featuring Terry DeWald's fine drumming would have added immeasurable appeal to the show. But while the band lacked the "drive" of former years, there were many high spots which contributed to an overall satisfactory presentation. From the first number, the saxophone sec lion proved itself the most coherent ensemble and cut its part well, especially in Now Hear This and Til Remember April. Unfortunately Opus in Pastels d.d not sound well rehearsed (along with several other selections in the program), but the fact that the saxes were hidden throughout this number by director Charlie Sharman proved more annoying than the misplayed notes. The band's leader seemed to feel it was necessary to stand in front of or as close as possible to each soloist or performing ensemble. This type of spotlight stealing is a mark of an amateur performance. Trumpets and "Bones Lack Unity The brass sections were too often uncoordinated and their entrances were frequently not together and erratic, as in Now Hear This, Strange and From This Moment On. Credit is due, however, to "Maynard" Lichtenwalter, whose lead trumpet was consistently loud and clear, as well as precise and generally in tune. It is regrettable that drummer DeWald did not have more opportunity to show his stuff. His support of the vocalist in both of her numbers was superb, as was his perfect timing in all the band numbers, notably Dane ng Puppet and Strange. In ad- dition to DeWald, some of Valley's finer musicians displayed good form during the concert. Nolan Miller was possib y the best consistent soloist of the evening. In addition to contributing some fine arrangements, his solo on Four Others was the only thing that saved that number from mediocrity. Waxworks was one of his finer efforts, as was /'// Remember April (possibly the best-played selection on the program). As usual, Tom Mann played a fine, creative tenor. While not as flashy as the fabulous alto of Harry Voshell, his work shows a thorough mastery of his instru- ment and a mature approach to music. Voshell was, by contrast, the showman of the band, playing with fine tonal quality and dexterity. In ensemble playing, how- ever, he also sounded like a soloist, riding too high above the rest of the reeds and destroying the balance of the sax section. Karl Smith's solo work, while far from the loud, driving, Ferguson-type of trumpet playing, was always controlled and, as in Bernie's Tune, melodic and enjoyable. Unfortunately, the band too often covered him up, as it did Miller and Bob Rhine (Now Hear This), who plays a fine, rhythmical bass. The other trum- pet soloist, sophomore Gary Spangler, shows signs of developing into a thoroughly competent performer. His ideas were both novel and interesting. Peggy Zimmerman Provides Pleasing Interlude The band's vocalist, Miss Peggy Zimmerman, would be a welcome addition to any stage, and appears well on the way to developing an appealing song style. Despite Sharman's everpresent appearance in the spotlight during both of her num- bers, there is little doubt in anyone's mind as to who was the center of attention. The band as a whole did it finest work in I'll Remember April, Laura and the Yardbird Suite. After this last number, the encores were an anticlimax. From a musical standpoint, the two Dave Pell Octets were tops. Jack Markert's Ferde's Surry provided comic relief, both in the combination of melodies and the choice of chords (wierd!). The long, drawn-out comedy act surrounding the "goof" in Early Autumn left many listeners in doubt as to whether it was planned (it was), especially after it was played nearly as poorly as an encore. Another notably sloppy number was From This Moment On. This year's version of the Engle jazz band would have benefitted most from the services of a good public relations man. With a totally irresponsible attitude surrounding the rehearsals, there were too many injured feelings. A leader owes it to the people in his band to maintain a high standard of business conduct at all times. When poor management results in the failure of a fine arrangement (Ron Fredriksen's Sound of Musk ) and mistreatment of the singers who agreed to per- form, not to mention the antagonization of other students and faculty members, the audience is likely to come to a peiformance with a preconceived attitude toward the mus.cal organization. Whatever the cause, the band did not have the full en- thusiastic support of the audience at its concert. It is hoped that future planners of such a program will profit by this year's mistakes.

After his appointment to foreign ser- vice work in 1946, he served in our em- bassies in Montevideo, Caracas, Nairobi and Guadalajara. In our Department of State he has served as Deputy Public Affairs Adviser of the Bureau of Inter- American Affairs, and is now Public Af- fairs Adviser of that Bureau. Mr. Phillips has served with our dele- gations to several international confer- ences, including the delegation to the Sixth General Assembly of the United Nations and to the Sixth and Seventh Meetings of Foreign Ministers of the American Republics held in San Jose, Costa Rica, in August, 1960. Organist Poff Will Give Organ Recital David G. Poff, a senior in the depart- ment of music, will present a recital of organ music in Engle Hall at 8:00 p.m., January 9, 1961. Poff lists among his repertoire works by Bach, Buxtehude, Dupre, Langlais and Wright. His program will include the old English tune "Greensleeves" and "Basse et Dessus de Trompette," by Cler- ambault. Active in the concert choir and presi- dent of Sinfonia, Dave accompanies the college chorus both at the piano during rehearsals and at the organ, as in Tues- day night's community Christmas pro- gram. Plan Local Division Of College Bowlers An organization meeting will be held on Sunday, December 18, to discuss the formation of an Eastern Pennsylvania- Southern New Jersey division of the Eastern Intercollegiate Bowling Confer- ence. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Lafayette Room of the Ben- jamin Franklin Hotel, 9th and Chestnut Streets, in Philadelphia. The plan for forming this collegiate bowling division was instituted because of the yearly inquiries about a confer- ence made from college students in this area who competed in the National Col- legiate Match Games. Students interested in competing on such a bowling team representing Leba- non Valley in the conference should con- tact the athletic office or attend the meeting. Dinner- Dance, Cantata Spark College Yuletide Celebrations Tonight's pre-vacation Christmas festivities begin at 6:30 with the Christmas Dinner, continue with the SCA Cantata shortly afterward, and close with "Decem- ber Dreamland," the annual Christmas Ball, from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. Sponsored by RWSGA and the Men's Senate, the holiday events feature Dr. Carl Ehrhart as speaker at the dinner, music by th e SCA Choir at 8:00 p.m., and Bill Nixon Will Direct Sinfonia Minstrel Show Faculty Looks Ahead ToComingEvaluation A faculty self-study was launched re- cently by Dr. Taylor Jones in prepara- tion for visit from a team of evaluators under the auspices of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in February of 1962. Such periodic self-studies and visits are checks on colleges accredited by the Middle States Association in order that they might continue as educational insti- tutions of high caliber. Dr. Jones, Executive Secretary of the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association, also announc- ed at the meeting in Annville that Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of Lebanon Valley College, had been elected to a term on the Commission on Higher Edu- cation. Marcia Paullin, RWSGA president, and Steve Wisler, president of the Sen- ate, coordinated the committees who planned the evening. Alonzo Trujillo and Polly Fitz are the co-chairmen of decorations for the dance. The Choir will sing "The Heavenly Child" by Bernard Hamblem as well as a variety of other Christmas carols and winter songs. Featured as soloists will be Doris Ingle, Polly Fitz, Fay Weik and Fred Eppley. Sam Shubrooks will accompany on the piano; Fay Weik is the organist. During the evening a sophomore girl will be crowned queen of the dance by last year's Christmas Queen, Carol Smith. Refreshments will be served during the intermission at the ball. At this girl-ask- boy event, there will be no admission charge. Sinfonia will present a minstrel show under the direction of Bill Nixon, vice- president of the organization. The program will take place at 8:00 p.m., January 6, 1961, in Engle Hall. While Nixon is acting as interlocutor, Tom Keehn, Terry DeWald, Ray Lich- tenwalter and Bob Meyer will participate as end-men. Gary Zeller and John Hutchcroft along with the Sinfonia Chor- us will present many old-time favorites with choreography by the end-men. Highlighting the program will be the Cocoa-Notes, a barber shop quartet from Hershey, which has sung in na- tional competition in Atlantic City, the Zembo Mosque, and at various other places throughout the area. Tickets may be purchased from any Sinfonian for one dollar each. Debate Society Active In Meets, Tournaments Lebanon Valley College's first debat- ing society in several years has been en- gaging in meets and tournaments, accord- ing to Mr. Jesse Matlack, adviser. Debating the question, "Resolved that the United States should adopt a pro- gram of compulsory health insurance for all citizens," the team spent December 3 at Temple University contesting various colleges. Affirmative team members were David Pierce and Sandy Hock; nega- tive, Bill Baker and Rowland Barnes. These members were chosen on the basis of ability and preparation by Mr. Mat- lack. Loretta Schlegel was LVC's represen- tative in the discussion of "Should the Federal government have control over communications?" at this meet also. Discussing the health insurance pro- gram November 16 at F & M were af- firmative, Dave Pierce and Sandy Hock, and negative, Bill Baker and Ray Wen- ger. Mr. Matlack is aiming towards a de- bating tournament, similar to the one at Temple, which would be held here dur- ing the second semester. On May 9, the society will sponsor a speech contest in chapel for LVC students. The club meets every second and fourth ' Tuesday at 7:30 in Room 27, Administration Building.

Annual subscription rates (non-college personnel): $2.00 This Is Progress — III In Search Of Equality Those who support the recent trend in the United States toward socialism supposedly base their actions on a desire to give all people greater equality. Those who earn a higher salary therefore pay higher taxes; everyone should share accord- ing to his own ability in the expense of running the country. This is a fine, humani- tarian attitude. But the wheels of progress are so clogged with red tape that the people of our country who need help the most are left to their own devices while the government goes about handling everyone else's money. College student Jim Jones earns a sum of money, tax-free, during the summer. Every week his employer must deduct a certain percentage and send it all to the government as withholding tax. Then the government sends Jim a W-2 form, which he fills out and returns. Since Jim's status makes him exempt from paying income tax on his limited earnings, the government sends him a check for the amount which was withheld from his salary. This is multiplied by thousands of college students all over America into a huge sum of money spent every year on stationery, stamps, IBM computers and the salaries of all the men who keep the records and mail the statements. And this is only one example of government waste. Another is the fact that La Vie receives three copies, mailed in separate envelopes, of every report from the senators of Pennsylvania. One would be quite sufficient. During the Thanksgiving holidays, Edward R. Murrow presented a program describing the plight of migrant farm workers. The facts were not distorted. Less than 100 feet off a main route in New Jersey, about 20 miles from this author's home, there is a settlement of these workers. And these people will sit among their cracker-box houses and tell you that they didn't have homes half as fine in other states. These people consider themselves lucky to receive a dollar a day for ten hours' work. It isn't easy to support a family on six dollars a week. And they have no chance to improve their status since education is all but impossible for people who must travel frequently to find work. But compared to some of our big city slum dwellers, these people are well off. If the rise in socialism is the result of a feeling of sympathy for one's fellow man, the government should stop trying to manage everyone's finances for them and put the wasted money to better use. Before we can afford to regulate a person's handling of his income, we must first see that everyone has an income to live on. (PHR) Collegiate Editors Comment Upon November Campaign Looking at the just-past elections, American college editors had many com- ments: "A majority of voters . . . pull a lever and never know why. Is the democratic process being sidetracked by uninformed voters?" — CHINOOK, Casper College, Wyoming. In today's fast-moving world, lengthy United States presidential campaigns have become as outmoded as the Pony Express. Perhaps long campaigns were needed when the stage coach was the primary source of communication, but with mass transportation and communication today they have become a needless waste of time, money and energy." — BULLDOG, University of Redlands, Calif. "No one man can do the job of president alone. America does not want a lone symbol of security; rather it wants a leader who can combine the energies of many men into the vital force which makes and keeps the nation great." — DAILY OR- ANGE, Syracuse University, N. Y. "The electoral system we now have is based on the 18th century idea that each state would select its leading citizens to join with those from other states to elect a president. The people were not trusted to choose their own leader. Hence it was done for them by the electoral college, "The electors, however, soon became automatons, exercising no discretion at all and blindly following the party line . . . The basic advantage of the college (leaving the actual election in the hands of an experienced, learned group of elect- ors) has ceased to operate. Why then should the system be continued? — COLLEGE CHIPS, Luther College, Decorah, Iowa.

Beat HOFSTRA Letters to La Vie Bedtime Story Gives Him Nightmares To the Editors of La Vie: I feel compelled to write this letter in response to the sudden flourishing of edi- torials in La Vie devoted to the fears of government theme. In the last issue the campus witnessed the emergence of, not one, but two junior Westbrook Peglers on the editorial staff of our college news- paper; this was too much for me to re- sist. Perhaps even Mr. Pegler would find their views embarrassing. Although I find much on which to comment in both "Bedtime Story" and "As Lambs Unto Slaughter," I will have to confine my remarks to the former for lack of space. Perhaps the most provocative state- ments in the senior editor's narrative are contained in his concluding paragraph. In Mr. Riddle's summation he states, "America needs a central government with the power to control its people like puppets on a string. America needs a father to tell its people just what to do. All this is necessary, because Americans have forgotten how to take care of them- selves." Come now, Mr. Riddle, isn't that a rather naive statement? Just how does one arrive at such con- clusions? Apparently beginning his nar- rative with the arrival of the pilgrims in the "New World," Mr. Riddle assures us that all men worked peacefully to- gether; "each one gave of his services so that the others might benefit." All men apparently "felt responsibility for his neighbors' welfare." With the division of labor into workers and supervisors, we are assured that "all still maintained the ideals of their forefathers." Suddenly, however, a mist covered the face of the earth and man changed. Management began to take advantage of the workers and laborers organized into "pressure groups" to demand more than five or ten dollars for a sixty-hour week. This was the opportunity for the real vil- lain to enter the picture. "Poppa gov- ernment" stepped in and ruined every- one's malicious fun by setting various standards and thereby depriving man of the freedom of starvation, sickness, sweatshops, unemployment, etc. The big flaw in the entire tale is, of course, the assumption of a sudden change in human nature, which makes the entry of government necessary. Man works together now; he has worked to- gether in the past; but now, as in the past, man will work with his fellow men only when it seems beneficial to him to do so. Government has played a larger role and will continue to do so, not because man has forgotten his responsibilities to his fellow man, but rather because he has accepted them. By allowing govern- ment to assume a larger role in the fields of health, welfare, labor, etc., man is showing a true concern for his brother. I would like to add that I believe the editors are playing a valuable role by presenting their views on such subjects even if I disagree with these views al- most one hundred per cent. It may arouse more interest in such important subjects on campus. Sincerely, BILL RIGLER A Rhyme-ful Of Thanks To the Students at LVC: Alas, alack and woe is me — I made the front page, in A black-bordered block, of The famous "Collegienne La Vie." An honor indeed and I am Duly impressed but you must Admit — that black box can be scary — (This thought came quickly: was I In a wreck or did I commit hari-kiri?) Heaven help us — this must Be my La Vie Obituary! Well, I read it and relaxed, My nerves not too greatly taxed, Your message of good wishes and cheer And said: "Bless them one and all, the darlings, the dear." To pen a rhyme for the La Vie One should be knowledgeable and astute. But hang poetic perfection — This is written from the heart, And I don't give a hoot. ALMA TREDICK Order Of The Court The Harrisburg Sunday Patriot-News printed a small editorial entitled "No Comment," which read as follows: "One of the white mothers picketing a New Orleans school where Negro first graders are attending classes . . . said: 'How . . . are we going to stop them if the police are bringing them to school? This is getting to be just like Russia.' " In considering the right of the Supreme Court to hand down the 1954 desegre- gation decision, we will look into several factors leading up to the momentous de- liverance of the opinion of the Court by Chief Justice Warren. The Court could not base its decision on the failure of the "separate but equal" doctrine, the Chief Justice said, because in many cases "there are findings. . .that Negro and white schools involved have been equalized, or are being equalized, with respect to buildings, curricula, qualification and salaries of teachers, and other 'tangible' factors." Rather, the Court looked instead to the "effect of segregation itself on public education." The very fact of separation of the races causes a feeling of Negro inferiority, the Justices felt, and this type of discrimination yields desecration of Negro person- ality, the effects of which are "unlikely ever to be undone." The Court referred to findings showing that the psychological effects of segregation tend to stunt the men- tal and educational growth of Negro children. Therefore, since separation denotes inequality, the "separate but equal" proposal is self-contradictory and unconstitu- tional. Southerners in particular and states' rights politicians in general feel that con- siderations more basic than sociological and psychological effects are involved. They cite the tenth amendment to the Constitution as a guarantee of the right of individ- ual states to regulate education and all practices pertaining to education. They claim that the integration ruling is itself unconstitutional; to them the desegregation law is a sampling of tyranny — unwarranted federal intervention. A certain Arizona Senator, who cannot be overlooked, would contend that although integration is a desirable end, the means of attaining it must first be sanc- tioned by an amendment to the Constitution stating that students may not be denied admission to a public school on the basis of race. It is appalling that a citizen of the United States should see fit to utter cries of tyranny upon observing enforcement of the rights of a minority. Yet an inescapable question comes to mind as one reads about the elephantine problem of enforcing the Supreme Court's decision: Is the arbitrariness of a Federal ruling ever redeemed by the morality or desirability of that ruling? This query is just another version of the one which asks whether the end ever justifies the means; and the civil rights issue is only one field in which the question faces Americans in the coming decade. (JMK) Got A Nickle, Buddy ? They've said what this country needs is a good five cent cigar. It doesn't. What it needs is a good five-cents worth of courage from you. Courage? What's that? Hasn't that word vanished from the English lan- guage? Maybe. Maybe not. Have you got five cents to spare, bud- dy? Not the nickle of courage under en- emy bullets, not the nickle in the face of personal danger. A nickle's worth of character. Who's given a nickle on this campus? How about the person who condemned the stag parties? Or those persons against the junior prom expenses? Is that cour- age? No, that's belief. We've all got be- liefs; we all hold different opinions. Ever hear of the man who wanted to prove his courage? He joined every con- troversial "anti" group. Well, he ranted and raved, even succeeded in proving his physical courage. But he finally resigned from them all. He found out that cour- age isn't a joiner; it's a loner . Courage is proven when you get that lost feeling. It's the strength that over- comes the disappointments and the per- sonal disillusionments. It's a part of ev- eryone who wonders and then keeps on living with a purpose when there'i no answer. Courage isn't a pillow; it's a pin cush- ion, filled with sharp spikes which hurt terribly, but at their points there's com- fort. It's comforting to have courage. Don't go out and fight the world. That's not the courage we want. Don't fight to be an individual just to be an individual. Live according to your own rules, and if they're the rules of society, you're on the right track. It takes a lot of courage to live in this world. It doesn't take much to exist. Can you live with yourself? Then you've got a nickle's worth of courage. And another nickle to give everyone you meet. (NHN) J£a Vie inquired by Connie Myers The students were nestled all snug in their dreams of Christmas vacations and gay New Year schemes. Perhaps Samuel Clemens Moore will pardon the parody from his famous poem since it is the Christmas season, the time of traditional benevolence and good will. On this the eve of Christmas vacation, our minds might be drawn for a moment from our private plans long enough for a last look at the Lebanon Valley cam- pus of 1960. Even before the arrival of the lights, trees, and snow of the Christmas season arrived, LVC was receiving gifts — a new dormitory under construction, repairs in some old dormitories, a new parking lot, a new infirmary and many other tan- gible and intangible benefits. We have much to be thankful for as 1960 draws to a close. If you were Santa Claus, what Christ- mas present would you give to Lebanon Valley College for the new year of 1961? Some female Santas had interest- ing offerings. Marylin Shaver: A new, large chapel of our own. P. Sue Smith: A new auditorium com- plete with stage lighting — a really big auditorium. Marena Colgan: A student union building. We need some place bigger than the lounge where meetings are al- ways being held. We need it especially on Sunday nights when the library is closed.

December Dreamland "The Finest Way To Spend The Last Evening On Campus" Admission Free To All Students La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1960 PAGE THREE Van de Water Sparks LVC Victory Over Muhlenberg Big Hank Van de Water dominated the last five minutes of the December 1 season opener with Muhlenberg to lead Valley to a thrilling 73-72 win over the Mules. Play began with LV controlling the opening tap and going down the floor to score on a jump shot from the corner by sophomore forward Tom Knapp. Through- out the first half the Dutchmen dominated the play, led by Art Forstater's shooting and passing. Muhlenberg was forced into mistakes by the pressing man-for-man defense em- ployed by the Dutchmen, thus contribut- ing to the 32-28 halftime margin held by LV. In the second half the Mules jumped into the lead and held it until the mo- mentous finish that was furnished by Van de Water. With 1:12 remaining on the clock, Hank dropped in two fouls and a field goal to tie the game at 69-69. He then lost his man and drove to sink lead points. Not to be outdone, Muhlenberg drove back to take a 72-71 edge with 17 seconds remaining. Once again Van de Water rose to the situation and scored the game's deciding points. Art Forstater led the team with 30 points followed by Van de Water with 25. LVC Hank Van de Water figures in a play early in the second half of the game with Muhlenberg. Valley later won with sev- eral close plays in the closing minutes of the game.

Included among these thrills are the last-minute win over Muhlenberg and the come-from-behind win over PMC. This team has displayed one or two qualities that could very well lead to a fine season. The first of these qualities is the team's ability to fight back. The LV squad never stops hustling. This hustle was shown most vividly in the Muhlenberg and PMC games when we trailed along into the final stages of the game. The other quality is the balance of the squad. Certainly there are players on the squad who stand out more than others but the loss of just one or two of these individuals does not put the team in especially hot water. In the Muhlenberg victory only two of the original five starters were in action at the final buzzer; in the PMC game, Hank Van de Water fouled out rather early in the game but Hi Fitz- gerald came off the bench to supply the needed punch to carry the team through. So far the team has shown good spirit and a lot of hustle despite its lack of size. This weekend they will meet a powerful Hofstra squad and their abilities will be put to their roughest test to date. (CB) Wrestling Preview The Lebanon Valley College wrestling squad coached by Mr. Jesse M. Matlack and led by senior co-captains Paul Longreen (177) and Dave Miller (165), will open their season on Saturday, January 8, when they meet Elizabethtown at home. The probable lineup for the first match will be Barry Keinard or Tom Kent at 123 and George Weaver or Don Kauffman at 130. Back from a year of absence is Jim Reilly, who will wrestle at 137. Ron Beistline will wrestle at 147. Wrestling at 157 will be Jay Kreider and at 167, Dave Miller. Paul Longreen will fill the 177 position and Vance Stouffer will perform in the heavyweight posi- tion. Others vying for positions are Bill Burkett, Joe Clark and Mike Gephart. According to the coach the team can improve their 3-5-1 record of last year and may go on to have a winning season. On January 10 and February 16 the wrestling matches will precede the varsity basketball games. Also, for the first time this year one home match will be televised on Channel 15.

The game was generally slow and saw the Dutchmen leading from the opening moments, never seriously threatened. Hank Van de Water led the team in scoring with 19 points followed by Hi Fitzgerald's 18. Fitzgerald and Van de Water are run- ning 1-2 for the LV scoring honors with 69 and 68 points respectively. Van de Water has led the team for two years. The first half of the Lycoming game found the Dutchmen in command with a 27-21 lead. In the second half LV open- ed its lead to as many as 13 points only to have the margin closed by a last-ditch effort by Lycoming. At the final buzzer the score stood at 60 for LVC, Lycom- ing, 54.

PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1960 CH JOB WOULD YOU TA If you're like most of us, you'd take the job with the more tempting salary and the brighter future. Many college teachers are faced with this kind of decision year after year. In fact, many of them are virtually bombarded with tempting offers from business and industry. And each year many of them, dedicated but discouraged, leave the campus for jobs that pay fair, competitive salaries. Can you blame them? These men are not opportunists. Most of them would do anything in their power to continue to teach. But with families to feed and clothe and educate, they just can't make a go of it. They are virtually forced into better paying fields. In the face of this growing teacher shortage, college applications are expected to double with?:*, ten years. At the rate we are going, we will soon have ?. very real crisis on our hands. We must reverse this disastrous trend. You • ••in help. Support the college of your choice today. Help it to expand its facilities and to pay teach .r*; the salaries they deserve. Our whole future as .t nation may depend on it. It's important for you to know more about what the '**v.' pending college crisis means to you. Write for a booklet to: HIGHER EDUCATION, Box 36, Times 5quc<e Station, New York 36, N.Y.

College Queen Contest Offers Giant Rewards The National College Queen Contest, to select and honor an outstanding American college girl is again underway. This year the National Finals will be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with more than $5,000 in prizes to the new winner. The competition will include a colorful Pageant in April of 1961. It will be a highlight of the Easter holiday celebra- tion which annually attracts thousands of college students to Fort Lauderdale. The National College Queen Contest Committee is planning the event in coop- eration with leading beachfront hotels and the City of Fort Lauderdale. The competition is a search to find a truly typical college girl who deserves the national crown. This is not just a "beauty contest." Only 50% of the judg- ing will be based on attractiveness, per- sonality, charm and appearance. Equally important will be scholastic accom- plishments, campus activities, hobbies and interest in community affairs. The prizes to the next National Col- lege Queen will include a two-week tour of Europe, visiting famous cities in Eng- land, France and Italy. She will also receive a complete head-to-toe wardrobe of high fashion apparel, and many other merchandise awards. If she is interested in the theater, the winner will also re- ceive a $1,600 scholarship to the famous Dramatic Workshop in New York City to study with Dr. Saul Colin, who coached such stars as Marlon Brando, Shelley Winters, Geraldine Page, etc. The National College Queen will also enjoy modeling assignments, network tel- evision interviews and a personal appear- ance tour. These activities will bring her added earnings, and will be arranged so that they will not interfere with her academic schedule. College girls in this area are now eli- gible, and may first become a Regional Winner. The regional prize is an all- expense-paid trip to Florida to compete in the National Finals. The finalists re- ceive round-trip transportation, accom- modations and meals at leading beach- front hotels in Fort Lauderdale, and are guests of the Pageant. A committee of hostesses and alumni of women's colleges will direct all activi- ties while the contestants are in Fort Lauderdale. A coast-to-coast television program is now being planned to cover the Corona- tion of the new National College Queen. The program will feature each candidate and will pay tribute to her college and community. Each Regional Winner will also re- ceive a Citation Scroll, presented to her and her college in recognition of her ac- complishments. Judges will include a panel of distinguished educators to score academic and current events questions while other experts consider attractive- ness, good grooming and personality. Upon entering this year's contest, col- lege girls will receive a questionnaire. They will be asked to describe them- selves, their campus activities and their post-graduate aims and goals. Any college girl, who is officially re- gistered at this school and in good stand- ing, can enter the new contest. Class- mates (young men or young women) can also nominate a girl to be an entrant. Mail the name of a nominee to the Na- tional College Queen Contest Committee in New York. Entries are now being accepted, and college girls in this area have a new op- portunity to win fame for themselves and acclaim for their college. La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1960 PAGE FIVE CAMPUS ART CONTEST WINNERS At the upper left is one of the paint- ings entered by first prize winner Pete Silldorff. Entitled "Tree Design," it is a tempera work, done by a process in which an albuminous or colloidal me- dium, such as the white of an egg, is used instead of oil as a basis for the pigments. In the center is Silldorffs oil of a farm scene, painted in 1954. To the right is another oil of a more ab- stract nature. Silldorff also entered works in pen and ink and a hammered copper portrait of a horse. In the lower row, the picture at the left is an oil en- titled "The Journey," which earned a third place prize for Pete Riddle. The center pencil sketch is one of four por- traits entered by Jo Ann Whitman, se- lected by the judges as second place win- ner. At the right is Lynne Williams' por- trayal of a circus, which received an honorable mention award. The response from the students in this contest justi- fies making it an annual event. It is hoped that students will also participate in the annual art exhibit at the end of the school year, also held in the audio- visual aids room of the library. Modem Bowling Dates Back To Thiid Century Twenty-five million enthusiasts, sleeves rolled up, will step to the black line this year, sight hopefully down 960,000 shim- mering hardwood alleys at over nine and one-half million beckoning maple pins, and take dead aim on the dream of all keglers since the start of bowling history — a perfect 300 score. Maybe you know a Joe who vents his aggressions Saturday nights at the bowl- ing alley by imagining that the number five pin is a guy owing him money for six months now. The same general prin- ciple was applied with variations back in the 3rd century, when bowling as we know it began to develop in Germany. The difference was that the Germans took it out on non-believers: each pin represented a pagan, and if you were able to "kegel" (bowl) a good score, it meant that you were leading a good life. The next thousand years saw bowling balls get bigger, rules tighter, number of pins used more varied, and appeal of the sport more secular. You needed a good "eye" to get a "strike" in some parts of 14th Century Germany, where you had the small target of three pins to aim at; but in other sections, the number ran as high as 17. Today the German (six Pound) Kegeln ball is aimed at nine pins set in a diamond pattern throughout Eu- rope. If ever there was a spoil-sport, it must have been English King Edward II. Dur- ing the middle ages bowling had become very popular as an added attraction at weddings and baptisms. Edgy Edward was scared that "kegling" would replace the more military sport of archery as the English national game. With no thought for bridegrooms anxious to show off their skill, the king proclaimed bowling a "dishonorable, useless and unprofit- able" pastime. Parliament, knowing on which side its bread was buttered, out- lawed bowling. But you can't keep a good bowler down, and Martin Luther proceeded to demonstrate the truth of this axiom by building a bowling alley for his children. He found that he chalked up his best scores on nine pins, and this number finally became standard for German bowling. The Dutch colonists were wide awake when they introduced nine pins to America, where the game became the rage of Peter Stuyvesant's New Amster- dam. Washington Irving's Dutchman, Rip Van Winkle, on the other hand, slept for 20 years and dreamt that he heard bowl- ing balls reverberating through New York's Catskill Mountains. He saw a "company of odd-looking persons play- ing at nine pins. Nothing interrupted the stillness but the noise of the balls which, whenever they were rolled, echoed along the mountains like rumbling peals of thunder." America went the Old World one bet- ter with "ten pins," the standard modern United States version, thanks to a Dutch- man. The story goes that the city burgh- ers feared the popular sport of bowling would encourage idleness among the people. So laws were passed against nine pins, but the aforementioned "legal bea- gle" spotted a loophole. The laws said nothing about games with more or less than nine pins. So he added a tenth, which today we call the "head pin." By using his head he not only got around the law, the burghers were stumped — so many of their neighbors had taken up the sport "legally" that there was noth- ing to do but succumb to the intrenched popularity of bowling. Since the days of that significant breakthrough, bowling has steadily boomed in America. Today's bowling enthusiasts spend an annual $250 million on their sport — ten times the total major leagues' gate receipts in a recent year. Bowlers fire a variety of balls at a "mix- ed bag" of pins. Ten pins with a regula- tion 16-pound ball is the most popular US game, with candle and duck pins as runnersup. A recent survey shows that the rate of expansion in small-ball bowl- ing (duckpins and candlepins) is greater than in big ball bowling. Depicted here are the pins and balls used in the world's most popular bowling games. From left: rubber-band duckpin with three-pound ten-ounce ball, popular in Pennsylvania and Quebec, Canada; ten pin with regulation 16-pound ball; candle- pins and a two and one-half pound ball (a game in which the downed pins are left on the lane and utilized); German Kegeln pin, used for several different games in Europe, with a six-pound ball; duckpin with regulation three and three-quarter- pound ball, popular in Maryland, parts of Virginia and throughout the Southeastern states. The lanes for all these games (except the German ones) are 60 feet in length. The small ball lanes are all maple because of the speed with which the ball is deliv- ered. The ten pin lane is made of maple (20 feet) and pine (40 feet). PAGE SIX La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1960 Music Moves From Spectator Sport To Everyday Activity In America "I hear America singing," poet Walt Whitman said a century ago. Today he'd hear not only singing, but the tinkling, tooting, scraping and strumming of the 31 million Americans — one person in six — who play musical instruments. He'd be able to hear more than half the world's symphony orchestras in the United States. In 1900, according to information supplied by Broadcast Music, Inc., there were ten symphony orchestras in all of America, less than 100 in 1920, and more than 1,200 by 1960. Music to his ears might also be the sound of cash registers all over the coun- try ringing up do-re-mi. In 1959, the na- tion spent $50 million at the concert box office, $100 million in all as against $305 million for all spectator sports. The box office "take" for concert music was big- ger than that for baseball. In short, Americans have good reason to blow their own horns, and 2,650,000 of them do, according to the American Music Conference. An additional 28 million plus play other instruments. The odds are better than one in nine that the next person you see in the street will be a piano player, about one in 40 that he or she plays the second most popular instrument, the guitar. The odds are one in 56 that you'll meet a string player, one in 67 that you'll encounter a wood- wind virtuoso, one in 78 that you'll pass an organist, and 138 to one that the next man, woman or child you see doesn't play the concertina. The score: twice as many do-it-your- self music fans as were around in 1939. Nine million of them are children getting school or private instruction, compared to only 2,500,000 a decade ago. That not all these kids practice unwillingly can be seen by the tremendous boom in school bands and orchestras. The bands, now numbered at 47,000, have doubled since World War II, while the 26,000 , . orchestras have increased in even greater j and audition for one of the musical or- proportion, largely as a result of interest j ganizations on campus, or add your mel- generated through class instruction. j odious tones to the college chorus.

Juke boxes, radios and TV sets have recently blared forth hits composed by high school principals and element- ary teachers, by jazz musicians and by teen-agers, by an aeronautical engineer and by a gospel singer, by Juilliard- trained artists and single-string guitar pluckers, by full-time dance band musi- cians and by housewives, by famed show business composers and by one-time field hands. In the course of its research, Broad- cast Music, Inc., discovered more upbeat news about music in America; with more than 156 million radio sets in operation and the average family turned in 13.75 hours a week, 1,145 AM stations and 117 FM-only stations were broadcasting, as of May, 1960, 13,300 hours of con- cert music a week! Almost half of the 5,331 LP's now available on 428 monophonic and 160 stereo labels are devoted to the works of contemporary composers. The opera world is singing the same tune. Almost 4,000 opera performances were given last year throughout America, and more than half of them were given over to 165 modern operas, most by American com- posers. So grit your teeth when Engle Hall blares forth its daily cacophony. Better yet, dust off your old trumpet or clarinet Campi EUROPE 1961 Study And Travel while Classes in leading European Universities Combined with Instruction Traveling to meet American Requirements for Academic Credit.

Steve Nolt Broadcasts us Music, News To Three Dormitories The prospect of broadcasting from LVC's own radio station is the dream of Steve Nolt, freshman. He's built a radio transmitter which has been received by students in Keister, Kreider, and Mary Green Halls. "Actually, it was just a publicity gim- mick at first," Steve explained. "We ad- vertised the jazz concert under the sta- tion call of WLVC, but it could accom- plish more than that." On the question of legality of operat- ing without a license, Steve stated that the intercollegiate transmitting rules per- mit such broadcasts. He then explained another point in its legality. "We used the 800 cycle — a station poorly received in this area, and the program could be heard only in the dorm it originated." "I played some music a couple of times, but I haven't used it recently. It operates on a tape recorder system," Steve continued. As to whether he'll be broadcasting again in the near future, he was not sure, but a permanent WLVC station would be an asset, he concluded. "Actu- ally, the cost of setting up this type of station would be around only $2500, and it would really add to the campus spirit." Valley Decorates For Christmas Holidays Despite the burden of long assign- ments and numerous pre - vacation tests, LVC students have found time to transform the campus into a picture of Christmas which has been further en- hanced by the addition of snow. Decorated trees atop the dining hall and library (furnished by the college) and lights in the dormitory windows give an extra glow to the normally unpreten- tious appearance of LVC. More spirit seems to be shown in the girls' dormitories than in the boys'. Ev- ery lounge is made more domestic by the addition of a Christmas tree and some outdoor wreaths. Hyphen Hall even has a fireplace where the girls may hang up their stockings. The Christmas feeling becomes more evident with the exchanging of gifts, carol singing and dorm parties at which some of Santa's strange-looking aides have made appearances. The most elaborate holiday ornaments on campus are to be found in the dining hall. Trees, spotlights, angels and Christ- mas music present an atmosphere unpar- alleled. In this setting the annual Christ- mas Dinner is the perfect way to begin the final evening on campus before vaca- tion. (CH, SG) I've Got A Problem Professors Are Human, Too Our stern but lovable professors usually attempt to conduct their classes with utmost decorum, interlaced with intellectual types of humor. Nevertheless, the students are most often amused by certain idiosyncracies which the profs themselves are probably not aware of. I Associate the following remarks with the profs who frequently use them as a part of their natural speech. For ex- ample, have you ever heard any prof say: 1 . Now, when I was in the Navy. . . . 2. We've always done it that way! 3. Your mediocrity is showing, peo- ple. 4. Ah, yes! 5. Give me the political, economic, social, psychological and religious causes of. . . 6. Now I had a purpose for saying that. 7. According to Murphy. . . . 8. Come on, lad, legato, legato. 9. On Tuesday we will write a little test. 10. Piano, piano, piano! 11. &::!!(§)::! 12. Now Brueckner and Grossnickle have a list 13. It's a basic, physiological princi- ple I 14. Mon Dieu! Mon Dieu! 15. Let's clear the building of all mu- sic and instruments. A score of 12 or more is excellent; ten or more is good and eight or more is fair. If you know less than eight, you may have been cutting too many classes. The answers will appear in the next La Vie. EUB's In Minority At Lebanon Valley How many Evangelical United Breth- ren students are there at Lebanon Val- ley College, a school supported by that denomination? It may come as a sur- prise to many to learn that only slightly over one- fourth (26%) of Valleyites are EUB's. A breakdown of this percentage shows that 28% of the 131 seniors, 30% of the 140 juniors, 22% of the 171 sopho- mores, and 27% of the 210 freshmen are EUB's. According to a La Vie survey based on the 1960-61 enrollment of 667 stu- dents, other major denominations repre- sented on campus are: Lutheran, 16%; United Church of Christ, 12%; Metho- dist and Presbyterian, 9% each; Catho- lic, 7%; Episcopalian, 4%; Brethren, Jewish and Baptist, each 2%. These stu- dents together with the EUB's comprise 89% of the total enrollment. Some denominations included in the other 11% of the students are: Congre- gational, Orthodox Catholic, Church of God, Dutch Reformed, Mennonite, Mo- ravian, Unitarian, and the United Church. There is one representative of each of the following churches: Bible Fellowship Church, Christian Science, Community Church, First Church of LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS "WTW'V^^THAt^ A UWOMZ ACIP IrJ WT CCKB $OTTl$. if Phi Mu Alpha Presents - "Every Joke Promises to Bring a Laugh" End Men : Bob Meyer, Ray Lichtenwalter, Tom Keehn, Terry DeWald The Cocoa Notes Guest Barber Shop Quartet from Hershey This Group Has Competed in National Competition Added Attractions: All-Male Chorus plus Dixieland Band January 6, 1961 8:00 p.m. Engle Hall Donation $1.00 "An Evening Full of Great Entertainment" Christ, Friends, Grace Evangelical, Inde- I A "Who's Who" nominee at Taylor pendent Bible Church, Islam, and St. Universtiy, Upland, Indiana, is Joe Paul s Union.
